There is a little known legend that but a handful of people know of - in the village of Shurooville!<br /><br />When three students set out into the woods to make a short film, they immediately find themselves lost. Soon they come face-to-face with strange and baffling encounters that send them on an epic adventure ... where there's more at stake than they could ever imagine!<br /><br />The Madness Tree is the second book in the Roots of the Naynab series that follows the mysterious myths, strange stories, terrifying tales and odd occurrences that revolve around the little known Naynab trees. <br /><br />The Roots of the Naynab is a book series surrounding the strange mysteries of the Naynab trees and the secrets they hold.<br /><br />An Interview with the Author<br /><br />Q:So what are the Naynab?<br />A: The Naynab are a peculiar type of fictional evergreen tree that grow large and wide. They have strong roots that branch out into a dense canopy. As a species of flora they have been around for millennia, even before human beings came around. It’s also believed that once upon a time they flourished all over the planet, but then started to disappear – why?? Well, no one knows. Today the Naynab are still found across the continents, however there are fewer Naynab today than there were thousands of years ago. <br /><br />Q:OK, what’s so special about the Naynab?<br />A: While most of the Naynab are like regular trees, centuries ago a few people began to realize that certain Naynab possessed strange and peculiar properties. Species of Naynab were either found to be in the present in strangest of places, or are in some form associated with grotesque and mysterious phenomena. The Roots of the Naynab series is essentially a fantasy series (with dashes of folk lore, action and bone chilling horror), that explore some of these mysteries.<br /><br />Q: Are the Naynab a real species of tree?<br />A: The Naynab and the Roots of the Naynab stories, as well as characters, are in every way fictional. <br /><br />Q: So, what is the underlying theme to the Roots of the Naynab series?<br />A: The underlying theme in the Naynab series - is obviously trees, but even more than that, it is about our relationship with nature, our home that we call ‘Earth’ and the need to conserve our natural environment. As human beings, there is much for us to learn. While the Naynab and the stories are fictional, the key themes the books talk about revolve around conservation and being more sensitive to the natural world that surrounds us. <br /><br />Q: Who are these books ideally for?<br />A: These stories are ideally for children; from 8 year olds starting to read chapter books to young readers who like scary tales with thrills and chills. <br /><br />Q:How should the books be read?<br />A: While each title so far can be read as a standalone book, the story-line in the Naynab series is staggered. The odd numbered books in the series follow one plot line while the even numbered books follow another.<br /><br />Q:How many books are there in the series?<br />A:There are 2 books in the series currently released, with more titles soon to come.<br /><br />Q: What can we expect from upcoming books in the series?<br />A: The series is going to get a lot more exciting with plot lines and characters that will evolve, as well as plenty of new twists and surprises in store for readers, so definitely look out for these upcoming releases and content.<br /><br />

<p>GENRE: Children’s Adventure <br />(An Unofficial Minecraft Book for Kids Ages 9 - 12 (Preteen)</p> <br /> <br /><p><b>You could say that is hardly possible for a Spider to be lonely or bored – all those legs and eyes – there must be something interesting you could do with it! Well, my story is different and I just might happen to be the loneliest Spider ever to be spawned in the world of blocks. That is why I’ve started writing a diary, yes! It gives me a feeling that I am not that alone and maybe someone will even read it someday! Until then I am using it as to-do-list and to write about occasional interesting mobs I stumble upon. Oh, yes! I also decided to leave the place where I was spawned and take a little adventure – I am not afraid, of course! I am an eight-legged monster.</b></p> <br /> <br /><p>That is exactly how I ended up in the West Village, looking for Spiders’ Eyes (Yuck! Gross!), so I could bring those to the Elders. Who are the elders? Oh, yes, I forgot to tell you about it, but you can read about it in my diary. I will let you take a peak!</p> <br /> <br /><p>Other books in The Spider Diaries <br />Book 2: The Spiders’ Eyes <br />Book 3: The Elders</p> <br /> <br /><p>This unofficial Minecraft book is not authorized, endorsed or sponsored by Microsoft Corp., Mojang AB, Notch Development AB or any other person or entity owning or controlling the rights of the Minecraft name, trademark or copyrights.
