“Wacky illustrations and another plot that twists and turns” —Booklist
In the Nocturnals fourth chapter book, Dawn a serious fox, Tobin a sweet pangolin, and Bismark a pint-sized sugar glider travel to a distant watering hole during dry season. Along the way, strange things happen: the ground crumbles, water disappears, and huge tumbleweeds chase after them. Is the forest alive? When the animals start hearing voices, they begin to wonder: are they imagining things or is something, or someone, else responsible? Only the Nocturnals can solve this mystery and unite the forest!
Bonus full color illustrations at the start of each chapter.
