Overview

The sixth book in the beloved Poppy series by Newbery Medal–winning author Avi, with illustrations from Caldecott Medal–winning artist Brian Floca

Has Ereth lost Poppy forever?

Poppy, a deer mouse, has spent the long winter curled up inside her tree snag home in Dimwood Forest. When the ground thaws and life returns to the woods, Poppy sets out in search of excitement.

Suddenly, swooped up by Luci the bat, Poppy is flying high over the forest. Meanwhile, Poppy’s best friend, Ereth the grumbling porcupine, who was with Poppy when she vanished, is convinced that she has died. He sets out to give her the best funeral ever.

Can Poppy find her way out of the bats’ cave to set Ereth straight and return home after the adventure of a lifetime?

After Rye's untimely death Poppy seeks to see Ragweed's earring. She makes the dangerous trip over Glitter Creek When she hears Ereth crying for help she runs and helps the drowning Ereth out of Glitter Creek. Soon after Ereth's rescue he believes he sees her ghost. Then breaks the terrible news of Poppy's death by saving him to her family. Did Poppy really die? I really don't read books about mice or porcupines, but this was an interesting and good book. Avi brought the beloved Poppy series to a great end. There are creative settings and dangers ahead in Poppy and Ereth. All the characters are very likeable. My favorite characters in this book is probably Spruce one of Poppy's many grandchildren and Luci. Spruce is very adventurous like his Grandma . Luci is a young bat that mistakes Poppy for a moth (I think that was very creative of Avi.) It was a fun, nice, cute book. Poppy and Ereth was a very easy to understand and enjoyable with a satisfying ending. *Book provided by HarperCollins Children's First Look program
