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 Book

Poppy, a timid dormouse, is a loyal, obedient subject of Ocax, the hoot owl who rules Dimwood Forest--until she sees Ocax devour her fiance. To prove that the intimidating ruler who promised to protect mice is a phony, Poppy embarks on a dangerous and eye-opening quest, which ends with her one-on-one battle with Ocax. Winner of the "Horn Book" Award.

From Our Editors

In the great tradition of Watership Down and Silverwing, Poppy stands as a marvellous contemporary animal adventure. The timid little mouse who dares to combat the controlling power of the evil hoot owl Ocax has become a favourite with middle readers between the ages of eight and 12. Avi is a popular children's author who has received both the Boston Globe and Horn Book Awards for Poppy.
