Escape to the mystical world of Boo Wood, inhabited by an array of enchanting woodland creatures and follow the misadventures of Lufkin, a loveable, chubby rat; Elsmere, the wayward but courageous 'Tinsy'; and Fergus, a forgetful starling whose curiosity quite literally lands him in danger. When Elsmere decides to leave the safety of her mushroom house in Boo Wood, she sets out on a perilous journey to The Big House, in the land where the frightening 'Thems' live. On her journey, Elsmere meets Nigel and Pickle, a pair of thieving hedgehogs; some bickering pigeons; a wise old kingfisher; and two gossiping badgers who love nothing more than a good natter - but will she survive her journey with ravenous foxes and snakes on her path? Can Lufkin and Fergus find Elsmere before it's too late, or will she be taken by the Thems, with Lufkin held responsible and banished to the Beetle Colony? This is a funny and charming story of friendship, courage and determination written by children's author, Judy Dixon, whose first book, The Halloween Chill was published in 2015.
