Editorial Reviews

The Nocturnals is an enchanting story about a group of animals who band together to protect their friends and find adventure. The characters are delightful and the nighttime landscape is captivating. It was just as I expected-because the best stories always take place in the dark!"- R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps "Hecht serves up both a curious adventure and interesting zoological facts in this volume. Her descriptions of flora, fauna, and natural phenomena are vivid and immediate... Fresh and fun: the brigade delights as it explores another forest mystery." (Fantasy 9-12) - Kirkus Reviews "Our heroes hold fast to their established personas: Dawn is the wise and mysterious fox; Bismark is the vainglorious sugar glider who manages to rise to even greater levels of lovable obnoxiousness, and sweet Tobin is the plodding pangolin, whose heroics involve a skunklike spray he emits when threatened... Once again, the trio's mutual loyalty and dependence on each other's unique talents-be they what they are-save the day. This is a worthy addition to the franchise."- Booklist "Hecht knows her audience and has written a well-paced story with short chapters that keep readers hanging on to the end... The unlikely alliance of the Brigade members, animals who come from disparate ecosystems, offers an example of unique individuals forming strong friendships."- Deseret News, Salt Lake City, UT "As with her previous two books in the series, The Mysterious Abductions and The Ominous Eye, Hecht does her best to weave science facts, literary conventions, and a rich moral foundation into The Fallen Star ." - Centered on Books Blog "The personalities of each animal character shine with their distinctness through actions and dialog. Marvelous creations-all of them... The story contains great messages for us humans-young and old-about respecting differences." - Always in the Middle Blog "The conflict was intriguing and had me worried about the fates of the forest animals. It actually felt like they were in danger, and there was a real mystery here. I would recommend this book to young readers who love animals." - Imaginary Reads "I find this third adventure of the Brigade to be the most hilarious, rip-roaring good read! In addition to dealing with poisonous fruit and gaseous critters, Aye-Aye Iris learns a very important lesson that even humans will benefit from." - Bookloons "
