Why we love it...

Echo is one of Ryan’s most remarkable storytellings. It begins with a boy in a forbidden forest who finds himself in a quest involving a prophecy, a promise and a harmonica.  Experience  the world of 1930's & early 40's as three children in different parts of the world manuver through turbulent times: Friedrich in Nazi Germany; Mike, The Great Depression; and Ivy, a very segregated California. Read this and you will never see the harmonica the same again.

Ages 10 & up
