Author: Rosemary Danielis
Desription: Iris, a feisty, solitary, eleven-year-old prefers being down by the creek near her house more than anywhere else in the world. School is nothing but a joyless prison and uninterested in her classmates she spends each day gazing out the window, waiting for the dismissal bell.
Her only friends are the dragonflies who flit through the bulrushes by the creek. She is thrilled to discover she can talk to them, but must keep this unusual ability to herself. People simply wouldn’t understand.
Iris doesn’t know that the dragonflies are not what they appear to be. They need Iris to unleash the power of the Earth and lead them into battle. This, however, is not what the Solaris have in mind. They have their own plans for the Earth and will not let anyone stand in their way, especially not Iris!
Iris has a lot to learn before she can help the dragonflies and fulfil her destiny and this is the beginning of her exciting journey.
Review: Iris and the Dragonflies is a novel written by Rosemary Danielis. The book is all about an eleven year old child named Iris. Unlike all other children, she prefers staying on the creek instead of playing with her friends. She also do not like going to school, not because of her resistance for learning but because of the fact the she can't relate with her classmates. Her only friends are the dragonflies. It amazes her how she can connect and relate with the said creatures.
Nonetheless, Iris is a special and loving child. She cares for the environment and enjoys doing great things for everyone. Her deep connection with the dragonflies became stronger especially when she learned about her destiny. My most favorite conversation in the book is this:
Iris: "A journey? Where am I going?"
Lea (dragonfly): "It's a journey into the future. Don't worry Iris, you are not alone. We are all in this journey together."
The relationship of Iris with the dragonflies is exceptional. It was only with these creatures that she learned the true meaning of friendship.
This novel is a certified must-read! It's perfect for all ages. You can read it yourself and allow Iris to bring you back to your childhood days.
