Elf dog & owl head  Cover Image Book Book

Elf dog & owl head / M. T. Anderson ; illustrated by Junyi Wu.

Anderson, M. T., (author.). Wu, Junyi (Graphic designer) (illustrator.).


A summer spent sharing the family computer with his annoying sisters, trying to tune out his parents' financial worries, and video-calling with his friends. That's what Clay has to look forward to during that first summer of the sickness all over the world. But one day, in the woods, everything changes. From the moment he sees the peculiar young dog with the fancy collar, Clay knows there's something special about her. There are other things in the woods, too -- beautiful, ancient things, tucked in the invisible folds of the forest, where reality ripples and other worlds can be glimpsed. But as Clay and his mysterious dog explore day after day, Clay comes to realize that the woods also hold secrets and traps and things to be scared of. If he's not careful, Clay might just step off the path and never find his way back. -- Provided by publisher.
