Synopsis: Frendibles are small, intelligent creatures who live in the pine forests of the southern United States. No bigger than baking potatoes, they wear clothes and walk upright on short, stubby legs. They live in abandoned foxholes, mole burrows or the holes left by the roots of fallen pines. They have many friends, a few enemies, and lots of adventures! By the author of "Henbit and the Roly-Poly" and "Cloth Characters: A Book of Doll Patterns and Ideas". "The Forest of the Frendibles", fantasy adventure for ages 10-14. Set in a rolling pine forest in the southern United States, the story follows the adventures of elderly matriarch Henbit and her clan of frendibles after some of them are captured by a family of humans. The adult humans seek to exploit the frendibles and destroy their forest home, while the two teenagers and their young sister fight to save them. On a different level the battle is fought between the beautiful but mysterious hawk Tegera and the corrupt and corrupting crow Vlandival. Another wonderful character is the intelligent though untrustworthy misfit Herman. Neither frendible nor human, Herman exists uneasily in both worlds and is the link between them. Like all of Marty's wholesome family fiction, "The Forest of the Frendibles" is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, with underlying themes of redemption and hope. www.frendibles.com
About the Author: Marty Donnellan is a writer, dollmaker and graphic designer. Some of the frendibles characters started out years ago as original cloth dolls. The setting for Marty's stories as well as the hawk and crow characterizations come from observations of life around her place in north Georgia, which, like the stories, contains woodland, field, river and thicket. Marty doesn't guarantee happy endings in her stories so much as hopeful ones.
