|Summary, etc.:|| "In The Nocturnals: The Hidden Kingdom, animals in the valley start to trip on the crumbling ground beneath them, water disappears, and disembodied voices are heard. Everyone assumes the forest is under an evil spell. However, it's a group of veiled creatures--a chameleon, stick bugs, leaf bugs, and other assorted camouflaged insects--that are upset because they want the valley's recognition for their hard work in preventing a drought. The Nocturnal Brigade--Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark--solve this mystery and unites the forest."--Amazon.com.

The fourth installment of this popular series finds our three heroesâDawn, the wise vixen leader of the Nocturnal Brigade; Tobin, the generally befuddled pangolin (spoiler alert: Tobin's in love!); and Bismark, the sugar glider who achieves ever greater heights of pretentiousness in every outingâtrying to solve a dire problem: Why is the forest coming alive? It's bad enough that there's a terrible drought, but now inexplicable occurrences are hampering the three brigadiers' attempts to find life-saving water. Quicksand that floats away? Chutes that drain ponds and disappear? Tumbleweeds that attack and capture victims? As in every book, our stalwart trio interact with unusual forest denizens (lyrebirds, a platypus), discover motivations behind seemingly hostile behaviors, and resolve to become more appreciative of all creatures, especially the insects that comprise the titular Hidden Kingdom. Wacky illustrations and another plot that twists and turns and teeters with cliff-hangers will keep fans enthralled.

Tracey Hecht has written, directed, and produced for film. The American Booksellers Association chose the first book in her critically acclaimed middle grade series, The Nocturnals: The Mysterious Abductions, as a Kids’ Indie Next List pick. Last year, she expanded the series to include early reader books, The Peculiar Possum and The Slithery Shakedown, so that families could share the reading experience together. In partnership with the New York Public Library, Tracey created a Read Aloud Writing Program that she has since conducted—both in person and virtually—in over eighty-five schools, libraries, and bookstores across the country. Tracey currently splits her time between New York City and Oquossoc, Maine, with her husband, four children, and dog, Penny.
