For months, Penny's dreams have been filled with melodious whistling, accompanied by twinkling lights. Then the mysterious whistling suddenly stops. When Penny goes searching for its source, she unexpectedly discovers her Cherokee roots--and a special gift that has been handed down to her.

Lyrical and skillfully woven, Audrey Penn's latest tale recounts a child's delight in awakening to her heritage. Lavishly illustrated by Barbara Leonard Gibson, The Whistling Tree reminds us all how deeply the past and the present are intertwined.
