Product Overview

With ears like a bat and webbed toes, it seems as if ten-yearold Jake could fly right out of reality into the freedom of his dreams. No more worries about asthma, special reading class, or his parents'' fighting--just sky. But Jake can''t simply fly away. There''s his little sister, Cassie, to tell stories to when the night sounds become frightening, amazing facts to learn from his best friend Luke, and a safe place--Dragon''s Nest--to build in the backyard.

This beautifully written middle grade novel tells the courageous story of Jake--a night watchman--a protector in the truest sense of the word who finds hope in crickets, friends, teachers, and dreams.
