Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation is a celebration to the triumphant power of Nature for all ages. This is a first-rate fantasy; a roller coaster ride of thrilling chapters. - James D'Angelo, author of The Healing Power of the Human Voice

This magical fantasy finds it's way into your heart so easily. It's one of those books to curl up with that makes you turn the pages to see what happens next, yet you don't want the story to end. - Susanna Bearfoot, pianist, composer and sound healer

Finally! A juvenile fiction novel that gave me chills for all the right reasons. Susan Hale has written a modern-day fairytale for all ages of a young girl's quest to find her voice. It interweaves the best and worst of being human and the worst and best of being magical. Her characters spring to life instantly from the lonely young Emma to her fragile grandmother, Maizy, to the very entertaining trees spirits only Emma can save with the help of her uncle, Alf. Throughout, we are reminded of the significance of ancestry and redemption, the power of the voice to heal, and the importance of family -- nature being as much our family as our human counterparts. Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation awakens us to the magic all around us. You may even find yourself singing to the trees!  - Dielle Ciesco, author of The Unknown Mother: A Magical Walk with the Goddess of Sound

This book made me very happy and made me want to start protecting more trees. The book reminded me very much of the trees at school that I named Mr. tree and Mrs. tree. I also liked that she had woven humor into the tree's personalities.
