Award-winning author Dashka Slater (Escargot, The 57 Bus) presents a funny and fast-paced middle-grade fantasy about a boy who discovers mysterious creatures in his grandfather’s barn.
Clumsy, awkward, and prone to major mistakes, Rufus feels trapped by his teasing classmates and their constant laughter. Summer break at his grandfather’s house offers a much-needed break, even if he does have to put up with his snooty cousin Abigail.
Then he discovers lost feylings, mischievous fairly-like creatures desperate to find their way home. When Rufus and Abigail decide to help, they tumble down a dark path rich with age-old secrets and difficult truths.
Dashka Slater’s Feylawn Chronicles bridges the real and the magical, creature and human, in a whimsical and classic tale of a young hero’s journey into a tantalizing, magical world.
