Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A shadowy witch, a cursed hunter—its tricky business for Sol and Connie as they face off against this awful pair. The kids narrowly averted being eaten by the last witch after them, and this time it doesnt look any better. Its a long way through the accursed valley, theyre running out of food and water, and that lodge on the mountain side with the collection of animals inside isnt exactly comforting. In this book by Keith McGowan, who can save them? The All Creatures Manager? A heroic woodthrush? The Camper Lady? The Know-It-All Cube? Or will they have to save themselves? And heres the worst of it: little do Sol and Connie know that the ancient child hunter is about to wake up—thanks to the witch's curse.
