Genre: Middle Grade Fantasy
Publishing Date: May 18, 2021
Welcome to Strange Hollow. Beware the Grimwood.
Poppy Sunshine isn’t like everyone else in Strange Hollow. She’s not afraid of the Grimwood, home to magical creatures like shape-shifters, fairies, witches, and even a three-headed dog.
Banned from the wood by her parents, Poppy longs to learn everything about it and imagines joining her mother and father as they hunt the forest’s cursed magical objects. So when her only family disappears on a routine expedition, she and her friends must break every rule to save them. But Poppy soon discovers that things in the Grimwood are rarely what they seem…
And the monsters who took her parents may not be monsters at all.
Gabrielle Kirouac Byrne lives in the rainy wilds of the Pacific Northwest, where she writes fantasy for kids of all ages. Gabby studied opera in Philadelphia, medieval studies in New York, literature in Scotland, and marine biology in Washington. Stories are the common thread that tie all her interests together. When she’s not writing, you can find her fishing spineless zooplankton out of the Salish sea with her family. In Gabby’s debut MG fantasy, RISE OF THE DRAGON MOON, the princess of a frozen Queendom fights to free her mother from the clutches of treacherous dragons. Gorgeous world building, and lush prose will immerse readers in this coming-of-age adventure in which a fierce girl tackles insurmountable odds with wit, strength, and heart.
The book follows a girl name Poppy, whose family is in charge of dealing with monsters and protecting the town from the Grimwoods. Poppy has always wanted to help her parents with protecting the town and fighting the monsters but they wouldn’t let her. Until one day, her parents go missing on one of their adventures and this gives Poppy the chance to prove to her family that she can go into the woods and rescue them on her own.
She ventures into Grimwoods in search of her parents and having an adventure of a lifetime. The book has fairies, witches, magical creatures, and lots of different kind of creatures.
