Description of this Book

Twelve-year-old Molly Pecksniff wakes up one night deep in Tanglefern forest - unaware of how she arrived there. Because Moll has been lured there by a nightmare, the one with the drums and the rattles and the masks that calls to her every night. And this is the night that Moll will realise she and her wildcat, Gryff, are named in an ancient prophecy that has been part of her family for generations and that a witchdoctor Skull is out to destroy. Suddenly, Moll finds herself on an adventure she would never have imagined, with secrets and magic at every turn. But with the help of Gryff, her friend Siddy, and Alfie, an unlikely ally from Skull's gang, Moll is determined to fight back and fulfil the prophecy before it's too late...

Author's Bio

Abi Elphinstone grew up in Scotland where she spent most of her childhood running wild across the moors, hiding in tree houses and building dens in the woods. After being coaxed out of her tree house, she studied English at Bristol University and then worked as an English teacher in Africa, Berkshire and London. She is the bestselling and multi-award shortlisted author of RUMBLESTAR (first in The Unmapped Chronicles series), SKY SONG & THE DREAMSNATCHER TRILOGY. When she's not writing Abi volunteers for Beanstalk, speaks in schools and travels the world looking for her next story. Her latest adventures include living with the Kazakh Eagle Hunters in Mongolia and dog-sledding across the Arctic.
