As ruler of Dimwood Forest, Ocax the hoot owl has promised to protect the mice occupying an abandoned farmhouse as long as they ask permission before moving about.
Poppy, a timid dormouse, is a loyal, obedient subject--until she sees Ocax devour her fiancé.
To prove that the intimidating ruler is a phony, Poppy embarks on a dangerous and eye-opening quest, which ends with her one-on-one battle with Ocax. Winner of the Horn Book Award.
