Jackie "the Librarian" | 219 comments Could it be Poppy by Avi?

"No creature is allowed to stray from their home unless they ask the permission of Mr. Ocax, a great horned owl. One night, a young deer mouse called Poppy and her boyfriend Ragweed go dancing on Bannock Hill without permission. Then Ragweeed gets eaten by Mr. Ocax. Poppy narrowly escapes the needle sharp talons of the vicious Mr. Ocax. Then when it is time to ask permission to move, Poppy is chosen and she notices that when she mentions "New House" Mr. Ocax immediately says no. Then she decides to investigate further and goes to New House. On her way, she meets a cranky old porcupine and they become friends. Then, she finds out the truth about New House and has a struggle to the death with Mr. Ocax."
Anthony, Resident Scholar
