Welcome to Strange Hollow. Beware the Grimwood.

Poppy Sunshine isn't like everyone else in Strange Hollow. She's not afraid of the Grimwood, home to magical creatures like shape-shifters, fairies, witches, and even a three-headed dog.

Banned from the wood by her parents, Poppy longs to learn everything about it and imagines joining her mother and father as they hunt the forest's cursed magical objects. So when her only family disappears on a routine expedition, she and her friends must break every rule to save them. But Poppy soon discovers that things in the Grimwood are rarely what they seem...

And the monsters who took her parents may not be monsters at all.

Review quote

Spookily thrilling with superlative worldbuilding. --Kirkus Reviews

A wonderfully imaginative tale filled with friendship and adventure--the magic of the Grimwood charms every page. --Heather Kassner, author of The Plentiful Darkness

Poppy Sunshine's realizations about the truths of her world, and her role in it, her magnificent companions, and the astounding Grimwood she lives beside make Gabrielle K. Byrne's The Edge of Strange Hollow a fantastic read. I'm still thinking about it, days later! --Fran Wilde, author of the Nebula-award-winning novels Riverland and Updraft

Praise for Rise of the Dragon Moon:

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Enthralling, masterful storytelling--a perfect blend of adventure and coming-of-age, and deliciously scary in parts. My head is still filled with glorious dragons.
--Karen Foxlee, author of Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy

The dragons...seethe and swirl off the pages. Fans of Erin Hunter's 'Warriors' series will enjoy. --School Library Journal
