It is not very unusual to become lost in the woods on a stormy night, but for a young girl named Persimmony Smudge, it is these very circumstances that lift her out of an ordinary life and set her on a path to adventure. Life on the Island at the Center of Everything is as predictable as the daily rise and fall of the prominent Mount Majestic, so the revelation that there may be a sleeping giant underneath the island - a giant whose awakening would mean certain destruction - calls for Persimmony to discover the truth, save the island, and perhaps solve the mystery surrounding her missing father. Trafton's charming little history would be best enjoyed by young middle school and late elementary readers, although older readers will appreciate the clever and subtle humor. This light read is not essential for a young adult collection, but would be a nice recommendation to a voracious, young reader. Illustrated by Brett Helquist.
