Dorrity is the only child in magic-free Owl Town. When she finds an enchanted book with dire predictions, she must face her enemies. And who is the strange boy who has appeared in the Beastly Dark? This stand-alone pre-teen adventure/fantasy novel is the third book in the "Tales of Fontania" series of novels, following The Travelling Restaurant (which received a starred review in Kirkus: "A heaping plateful of adventure, spiced to perfection with dangers, deft humor and silly bits.") and The Queen and the Nobody Boy. Filled with humour, action, adventure, and magic, this is a truly gripping read featuring a large and memorable cast of characters.

Industry Reviews

"Else contrives a plot that leaves neither characters nor readers much chance to catch their breaths . An entertaining romp, more comical than scary and with a poignant but hopeful close."

-- Kirkus Reviews (US)

"Another delightfully visual hardback, with charming illustrations this is Else's third story from the magical land of Fontania ... and possibly the best."

-- The New Zealand Herald (NZ)

"An excellent tale of magic, adventure, invention, humour and silliness [and] snappy, witty dialogue between the characters."

-- Your Weekend Magazine
