“A whimsical wonderful story for readers of all ages. The boys' relationship to nature was original and illuminating, and the characters were all well drawn and brimming with life”  Linden Gray
"Once in a while an author comes along who can really tell a tale. Thomas L. Peters reminds me of Mark Twain in his telling of this lovely story of two young boys and all the trouble they get in during the end of their school year and the beginning of summer. Russel is a total character who perceives the world with a great simplicity. I loved his parents and their idiosyncracies. His buddy Sammy is a real precocious lad, who talks to the trees and the wind and has the most bizarre family you can ever imagine. The descriptions and dialogue are pure gold. The story will linger on in your heart. A truly beautiful story for all ages." Lynne Murray at the Bookworm

"The Boy Who Delivered the Wind is an engaging story told from a tween boy's point of view. It gives us a little paranormal, a little suspense, and a little mystery. With two flawed, yet well-meaning boys, the story has a little more depth than many YA novels yet maintains its playful nature.

Written in a meandering style reminiscent of a delightful hike, I enjoyed turning the pages to discover what the boys would do next. This author is particularly good at making his characters believable.

The story begins when Russ, a typical nice boy who wants to do the right thing, discovers Sammy in the woods. Sammy, a skinny, opinionated kid, insists the wind talks to him.

Sammy is desperate to support his family and comes up with ideas to make money fast. Russ agrees to help him, but in their pursuit of cash, they get pulled into the dangerous world of real criminals.

Unsure who to trust or where to turn, the boys rely on their wits."

Book Blurb for The Boy Who Delivered The Wind

Two boys, a gang of thugs, and an unruly coral snake all add up to trouble.

Weary of school and his mundane small town life, young Russell befriends a lonely boy who claims that he can communicate with nature by means of the wind. Armed with this knowledge the unlikely pair set out to raise the ten thousand dollars the boy insists he needs to save his home from foreclosure and to keep his already dysfunctional family from falling apart.

Along the way the boys encounter a murderous gang of hoodlums who also have money on their minds, a sneaky fox who always seems to turn up at the wrong time, a mother hawk willing to do anything to protect her young, and a venemous coral snake with unclear loyalties.

The Boy Who Delivered The Wind is a moving piece of literary fiction exploring the bonds between friends and the heroic efforts of two very different boys to find something to hold onto in a chaotic and sometimes dangerous world.
