Gnarlys of the North Woods will delight readers young and old as it leads them deep within the Gnarlys’ world, from their “gruf” inside the hollow of Sweet Fat Mama, along a network of tunnels and runs, across Alder Creek and into the Way-Way Yonda. The Gnarlys’ archenemies, the Gnomes, are old and wise but Gnarlys have Juju, a genius for imitating any song, call or sound in the forest. It’s a talent that leads them into the biggest trouble of all – for Gnarlys, Gnomes and the forest they love.

While Gnarlys of the North Woods is fantasy, it is real world in the depiction of northern forests. It is an invitation to go outside, find the forest around you. Look closely and watch where you step.

There is magic in the world at your feet.
