A little girl who can only sleep during the day grows from something of an isolated town oddity to the heiress of an ancient legacy of magic and music.
Exquisitely illustrated, this gentle, satisfying young fantasy is filled with unforgettable, quirky characters and imagery. A perfect read-aloud, it shows how one can find friends in the unlikeliest of places--windowsills, rabbit burrows, the library.
Debut author Christopher Pennell casts a spell with his irresistible adventure while illustrator Rebecca Bond's pen-and-ink drawings perfectly capture this atmospheric world and contribute to the feel of a timeless classic. Step into the mysterious woods of Whistle Root and feel the magic.

When she is not having fun painting and writing, she is busy fixing up her old house in JamaicaPlain, Boston and spending time with her two young children. She is the author of several picture books and has illustrated one chapter book, The Mysterious Woods of Whistle Root.
