Description

Darkness. Utter blackness. Was this why his mother had refused to let Jack unlock his father's old trunk? It had been two years since his dad had died, and all Jack could think about was examining whatever treasures were stored inside the beloved trunk. But when he finally lifted the lid, he didn't just fall in-he fell through it into a pit of rattlesnakes! Trying to recall his mother's stories about "the Breath of All Good Things"-anything to shed light on his current situation-Jack wishes he'd paid better attention rather than mock the tales as childish myths...and that he'd waited to enter the trunk with his sister, Lilly, so they could at least face this together. Like L. Frank Baum's Oz and C. S. Lewis's Narnia, M. M. Allen brings to life the fantastical world of Wishapick-a land of courageous animals ruled by a cruel rattlesnake king who has condemned the villagers to live without light. Chosen as the reluctant hero to save the villagers, Jack must face terrifying creatures and overwhelming odds if he wants to help his new friends-and return home himself.
