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. (from the first line)
As ruler of Dimwood Forest, Ocax the hoot owl has promised to protect the mice occupying an abandoned farmhouse as long as they ask permission before "moving about." Poppy, a timid dormouse, is a loyal, obedient subject--until she sees Ocax devour her fiance. To prove that the intimidating ruler is a phony, Poppy embarks on a dangerous and eye-opening quest, which ends with her one-on-one battle with Ocax. Winner of the "Horn Book" Award.
From the Publisher:
Poppy the deer mouse urges her family to move next to a field of corn big enough to feed them all forever, but Mr. Ocax, a terrifying owl, has other ideas.
Annotation:
Poppy is a teenage mouse who lives with her family in Dimwood Forest which is ruled by an owl known as Ocax. Ocax presents himself as a benevolent ruler but Poppy discovers the truth when she sees him kill and eat her fiance. To further complicate matters, Ocax will not allow Poppy and her family to move out of the forest. Poppy sets out on a dangerous mission to free Dimwood Forest of Ocax forever.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.
