    1. I have a soft spot for tales of little creatures, from the borrowers to the Lilliputians of Gulliver's travels, tales of the tiny folk have never once disappointed me.Greta has successfully carried the torch for my love of the little admirably.Gerald is a normal teenage boy who happens to be the only one who can see a race of little people who live in the woods, his friend becomes understandably concerned when Gerald announces that he needs to rescue them.But, being a good friend, he helps his G [...]


    2. This is a story about bravery and putting others before yourself among many other things. This book was filled with positive messages and was told in an entertaining creative way. I really enjoyed this adventurous journey and was rooting for Gerald and Vernon to save the day. The writing seemed effortless and the narrative was easy to follow. Even though this book is mainly for young boys I enjoyed reading as the mysterious adventure unfolded. There was a sophistication to this saga that made me [...]


    3. Happy Friday! Today, I am reviewing the book, Gerald and the Wee People by author Greta Burroughs. This is a book for kids ages nine and up. It is fantasy/adventure and a story that all kids and adults would love to read!This book is about a teenager named Gerald and his best friend, Vernon. In a special clearing in the woods by Gerald's house, a tiny village of Wee people live, but only Gerald can see them, at first. Together, he and Vernon go to the Wee people to help them defeat a band of mis [...]


    4. "Gerald and the Wee People" tells the story of Gerald and his friend Vernon, two 16-year-old boys, who are summoned to help the wee people save their village from monsters. Gerald is known as the Watcher, as he alone has been able to observe the tiny villagers wander about their town for many years. But now the wee people are in danger and Gerald is the only one who can help.The boys finally manage to enter the diminutive village, only to be treated as invaders. They encounter many memorable cha [...]


    5. Gerald has watched the wee people for years. In the woods near his home is a peculiar cleared area. For some reason, Gerald is able to see into that area and view a different world. Vernon, Gerald’s best friend, is not able to see beyond the enchantment, but he has always supported Gerald, and trusted his instincts. But lately, things are amiss in the small kingdom – some creatures are attacking the fortress, and it appears as if the wee people are in trouble. Gerald convinces Vernon to acco [...]


    6. I read Gerald and the Wee People in concert with my 10-year son. I had a feeling that he would naturally gravitate to the adventures of Gerald and his best friend Vernon as they tried to help the Wee People defeat the misshapen ones who are attacking the Wee People's village. Gerald is put on a hero's journey after learning of a prophecy that he must fulfill in order to reach his destiny and save the Wee People from the evil forest god, Miach.My son blew through the book in a matter of days. The [...]


    7. Coming Of Age In Gerald and The Wee People, Greta Burroughs speaks to the imaginations of young adults as she catapults Gerald and his best friend Vernon into another world, stretching their ability to believe what is happening. Beyond the strangeness of this new world, however, they soon realize that it mimics their own in many ways. The pettiness, the prejudices, the love, the caring—both the good and the bad exist in both worlds, all contributing to the drama in their lives. Gerald and Vern [...]


    8. In a clearing, in the dark woods, is a secret society of wee people and Gerald, with his friend Vernon, has just stumbled into a wee war. With wonderful imagery and imagination, Burroughs takes her readers into a magical world filled with terror, adventure and an unsuspecting hero.Gerald and the Wee People is a book that brings the impossible to life and takes the reader right along with it into a battle that may mean death for the wee people. Without the help of Gerald, who doesn’t even know [...]


    9. This book opens with Gerald trying to persuade his sceptical best buddy, Vernon, to go down to the woods to help the Wee People who he has been seeing in visions since they were at school. Like all good adventures, we have a character who believes & a character who disbelieves even what he's seeing. This is a book that teens & adults will enjoy, I think. It's good for young readers and there is enough going on to keep adults interested. I like fantasy books where the author builds a new [...]


    10. I really enjoyed reading this book. The author took a few plot twists that I probably wouldn’t have taken and when I read them I wondered how in the world that was ever going to work out but I have to say she surprised me every single time. I fell in love with the wee people and especially the far-seers. As far as I’m concerned they were the heroes here.The world created by Burroughs was fantastic. I got lost a couple times with where the boundaries were but the story didn’t really need th [...]


    11. Gerald and his friend Vernon find themselves facing adventures in the world of the wee people that test their views of what the real world is. In it they encounter magic and strange creatures they must help the wee people defeat. How that ends will surprise readers - in a good way. This is a book that will appeal to young teens and adolescents. It has lots of adventure, imagination, and characters they will relate to and love. It grabbed me from the first page and never let go. While there was p [...]


    12. This review is from: Gerald and the Wee People (Kindle Edition)This is a charming fantasy story, difficult to put down, and the pages and action quickly fly by. The plot and setting have been mentioned in previous reviews so I won't be repetitious, but what I will bring up again is the quality of the story and its delivery. Readers nine or ten years old and up will enjoy the action, dialogue, and themes ranging from childlike to mature in this well edited novel that is a clean read with no sex o [...]


    13. I love books that take you to an imaginary place and make you feel like your part of it. Greta does exactly that in this book. I was having a tough with reality when I started reading this book, it pulled me in and kept me there. Though it's a young adult book and I'm way past that point, I couldn't help falling in love with most of the characterss, even the evil Micah. Follow Gerald and Vernon as they help the Wee people in their war against the misshapen ones. This is the first book in this te [...]


    14. I love fantasy, especially when it is laced with spices of reality. The adventure of Gerald and Vernon had me traveling from Lilliput to Oz, and even taking a pinch of primitive science. I never thought of someone else thinking about using old bread mold to elicit its antibiotic properties.Ms Burroughs was able to create easy dialogues among almost familiar creatures, without messing my head with complicated names. And strangely enough, I read without searching for grammar glitches, typos and wh [...]


    15. This review was done by my 9 year-old daughter. Here is what she had to say: "I loved the story! It was very adventurous. I couldn't stop reading it the moment I started."


    16. Well I read this book in front of a young reading group, or at least, I tried to. Half way through the story became confusing and rambled all over the place. Nothing made much sense it seemed. Very little details and that left me wondering where this story was headed!Poor reading and I'm sorry I bought this book.Andi K.
