Translation of Tamooran Language on back
After consulting with many readers, we realized a bookmark with a translation of Tamooran words on the back would great for the reader.
Now you never need to look to the front of the look to see the meaning of a Tamooran word, just look at your bookmark.
A great gift for Potter fans hungry for another epic fantasy!

Here are some reviews:
“Ample mystic lore and wisdom teachings are gently and artfully woven into a rousing good tale. The kids will have to share this one with the grown-ups.” — Light of Consciousness
“Avanti is a master story teller as she guides you though this young dragons encounters with danger and evil. I love this book! .... — Mystic Pop Magazine
“...GreeHee, The Journey of Five, had me on the edge of my seat. ...a young dragon and the fairy....must face their enemies, their fears, and keep alive the hope of their hearts. GreeHee is a book of mystery, adventure and prophecy ...I truly recommend GreeHee, The Journey of Five.” — In Light Times
“Being a middle-aged man, fantasy isn’t exactly my cup of tea, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The marvelous fantasy world the author created, the wonderful creatures and characters inhabiting that world, and their epic physical and spiritual journey are entrancing. This is a fine work of fiction that will be hard to equal as the series continues.” — Comments from an NCPA Judge
“...I honestly did NOT think that I would become so thoroughly engrossed in a so-called Children’s Book. The story is told in a ...straightforward manner, ...complicated enough to hold the interest of discerning adults who ... find it difficult to lose themselves in a world of fantasy.... I believe that it’s a story for ANY age group ...I highly recommend this fascinating and well-written story.” — Linda Cunningham, Norton Brothers Books, Roseburg, OR & www.nortonbrothersbook.com
“I am not a fantasy reader but when the rage over Harry Potter got to me I ...read it, and enjoyed it. But when I read Michele’s GreeHee The Journey of Five I felt that I discovered a new J.K. Rowling. The lovable characters ...dragons, fairies, giants - are etched in your memory long after you close the book. Like Harry Potter, Michele’s fantasy will appeal to both children and adults. It’s only a matter of time when the U.S. version of Ms. Rowling takes hold in America.” — Francine Silverman, author of Talk Radio for Authors, Riverside, New York
“...I’ve worked with ...school children and have tried to choose books to read to them...that would enhance their self esteem and encourage them to make good choices. GreeHee is an excellent ....I highly recommend it to any age group-even us big kids. — Carron Baxter, Retired Elementary & Middle School Teacher, Gardnerville, NV
“Michele Avanti writes like an artist paints--visually. With words as colors, magical characters as texture, and an enthralling plot as form, the GreeHee canvas captivates and enchants. In the first chapter you're into the painting. You've mounted up on GreeHee's rippling back, behind the beautiful, kidnapped fairy, Loni. You join their quest--one seeks to return home, the other to prove a dragon's savage prowess. Then you're off and into Michele Avanti's masterful composition--gasping at the mystery, in awe of the fantasy, intrigued with the adventure, rolling in laughter, and enlightened by the wisdom. ” — Eda Hatfield, Retired Teacher, Reno, Nevada
Great for Pre-Teens, Teens, Young Adults & Young at Heart!
“While I am not a fan of Epic Fantasy, I read GreeHee: The Journey of Five, at the insistence of my 20 year old son. I'm glad I did!
My journey with GreeHee (a teenage dragon) took me to distant magical lands, introduced me to memorable vibrant characters and kept me reading till dawn! GreeHee faces a crisis of self-awareness, character and growth within a colossal tale laden with mystery, prophecy, perilous journeys and encounters with evil.
As an educator and former counselor of teens and young adults, I recommend GreeHee as a book that is fun to read; keeps one involved from opening to close; and teaches without preaching many important, positive life lessons including the greatest secrets for living a fulfilled life. It's a sure bet as a gift for pre-teens, teens, young adults and the young at heart! ”— Arizona School Age Coalition, Phoenix, Arizona
"I couldn't stop reading this wonderful fantasy. I read it in one sitting through the night. Every character in the book touched a part of my soul as if I had been this character or at least lived the same experiences, feelings and thoughts at some time in my existence in this lifetime or in another. GreeHee, a young dragon, who wanted to be cruel like his father comes upon Loni,a young fairy, who helps GreeHee follow his heart. Together their adventures help them learn to love, overcome obstacles and be true to their hearts. This book is not just for children. Every adult should read this book. It helps us go back to our childhood where fantasy and dreams are always alive and real. You will love GreeHee, Loni and their adventures in Tamoor. I am looking forward to Michele Avanti's next book in the series. Thank you, Michele, for your vision and sharing it with us." —Donna Smith, Administrator, Unity of Roseburg, Roseburg, Oregon
A Ripping Good Story
"GreeHee is a gentle and fascinating flight into a unique imaginary world, and a lovely, uplifting, tale of self-discovery and the empowering, healing value of love, honesty, and friendship.
The narrative is brisk and uncluttered driven almost exclusively by concise, well realized dialogue as the characters interact, questioning events, and revealing their ideas, hopes and fears. The overall narrative structure is similar to a video game, moving from place to place, dilemma to dilemma, with a solution and a message at each turn. Thus the tale never flags or loses focus and pulls you in, and along, with it. Its a genuine page turner, you will have a hard time putting it down as it scurries along.
The author's occasional forays into description never obstruct this flow but serve to illuminate particular aspects of a marvelous highly imaginative dreamlike world as necessary to the narrative context. The sensation is one of running along with the events, sharing the lives of the generally agreeable, 'believable' imaginary characters and their need to reach the end of their quest of discovery. A quest which gently - descriptively rather than prescriptively - articulates a philosophy of faith and love, where evil cannot be overcome by violence but by its own lack of love which ultimately finds it helpless when confronted by a community of trusting friends who share their love honestly and willingly.
If you like, a good fantasy tale and/or if you like to read out loud, and have children, they will love GreeHee and company's journey of self-realization and understanding, and the wealth of characters and dialogue will give you a great opportunity to develop your skills at characterization.
The message of love, faith in self, trust in others, honesty, community and willingness to listen and accept difference even as our cultural training tells us to be suspicious is one that needs to be told. This book tells it very well and makes for joyful, enlightening, heartwarming, reading (maybe someone might send copies to a number of our political leaders, we could certainly use a few "friendly dragons").
Highly recommended to lovers of the heart, fantasy world travelers, and children of all ages. — Orsetto, Lecturer in English Language & Culture, University of Bari, Italy
