“Wildly inventive. Like this novel, Lucy is brave, smart, and destined for greatness.”—Holly Goldberg Sloan, New York Times bestselling author of Counting by 7s

Lucy Darrington has to run away from boarding school.  Her father has been away too long doing research in Saarthe, a remote territory populated by towering redwoods, timber barons, and the Lupine people. Upon arriving there, she learns her father is missing. Rumor has it hes gone in search of dreamwood, a rare tree species with magical properties that could hold the cure for the blight thats ravaging the forest.  Determined to find her father, Lucy and her friend Pete follow his trail to the deadly woods on Devils Thumb.

Synopsis:

Birdie McAdam, a ten-year-old orphan,and#160;is tougher than she looks. She's proud of her job as apprentice to Alfred the Bogler, a man who catches monsters for a living. Birdie lures the bogles out of their lairs with her sweet songs, and Alfred kills them before they kill her.

Liesl lives in a tiny attic bedroom, locked away by her cruel stepmother. Her only friends are the shadows and the mice—until one night a ghost named Po appears from the darkness.
