It's not always easy being brave - especially if you are a deer mouse and only six inches long (and three inches of that is your tail!). Nevertheless, Poppy, with her beautiful orange-brown fur, dark round eyes and pink toes is forced to become braver than any other mouse. She and her family live in an old house on the edge of the sprawling, sinister Dimwood Forest. They are ruled over by Mr Ocax, a great horned owl who dwells in Dimwood. But the mice are not just his subjects - they are also the main ingredients of his dinner...This is the journey of one small mouse into a big, dark forest: a journey of courage and self-discovery.

King of the Night
At the very edge of Dimwood Forest stood an old charred oak where, silhouetted by the moon, a great horned owl sat waiting. The owls name was Mr. Ocax, and he looked like death himself. With his piercing gaze, he surveyed the lands he called his own, watching for the creatures he considered his subjects. Not one of them ever dared to cross his path. . .until the terrible night when two little mice went dancing in the moonlight. . .About the Author:
