Publisher's Summary

In Dimwood Forest, all the mice know that moving beyond Grey House requires the permission of the great horned owl, Mr. Ocax. No one but Mr. Ocax can guarantee protection against the horrible porcupines who lurk in the forest, waiting to grab innocent creatures. He frequently reminds the trusting mice of his importance, as he snatches careless ones for his frequent meals. But Poppy is a curious mouse, and a little foolish. When she is caught dancing in the moonlight on Bannock Hill, she soon faces not only the great owl, but a huge porcupine, and an impossible challenge.
Poppy, an ALA Notable Children's Book, is a warm and lively tale for young listeners and their parents. Through the award-winning talents of the master storyteller Avi, the tiny creature's far-ranging adventure provides a hearty lesson about bullies and celebrates the strength of a courageous spirit.

Great story well performed

I love all Avi's stories, but this is my favorite. It has everything- excitement, suspense, wonderful characters, beautiful prose and a very satisfying ending. The story was simple enough to entertain me as a child and wise enough to still keep my interest as an adult. John McDonough does a wonderful job narrating it. He captures the characters exactly as I imagined them.
