"The books celebrate the very meaningful idea of friendship."—Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

In the second middle grade chapter book, The Ominous Eye, Dawn, Bismark, and Tobin set out to investigate the source of a jolt that fractures the earth! Along their journey, the Nocturnal Brigade meets an unfamiliar reptile—a tuatara named Polyphema—who reveals that a giant beast caused the fractures and might strike again. Polyphema, with her special insights, claims she is the only one who can help stop this villian… but can she be trusted? The Nocturnal Brigade teams up with an owl, the jerboas, and some kiwis to set a trap since surrender is not an option. In the end, the Nocturnal Brigade—Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark—solves this mystery and unites the forest.
