From the Publisher
Annotation When she sneaks out of her house near Dimwood Forest, a teenage mouse named Poppy anticipates the happiest night of her life. Poppy fully expects to get engaged to her boyfriend, Ragweed, that night, but instead, Ragweed is murdered--killed right in front of Poppy by an owl named Mr. Ocax. Poppy is scared and confused; her father always told her family that Mr. Ocax was a friend to the mice--and their greatest protector. How could Mr. Ocax have killed Ragweed? To make matters worse, Poppy discovers that her run-in with Mr. Ocax has put her entire family in danger. Determined to make things right for her family, Poppy sets off a dangerous journey, one that she hopes will free Dimwood Forest of Mr. Ocax forever. Illustrated with occasional B&W drawings. Poppy's story continues in POPPY AND RYE.
First Line A thin crescent moon, high in the sky, shed faint while light over Dimwood Forest. Stars glowed. Breezes full of ripe summer fragrance floated over nearby meadow and hill. Dimwood itself, veiled in darkness, lay utterly still.
