Missy, ' Davlin began carefully, 'I'm afraid that when we went through that hedge, something happened...something which will seem very strange to you.' 'I can't imagine what could be stranger than finding talking animals and...norns, ' she said, nodding her head in Einar's direction, 'in your backyard ' 'Well...you see, we are no longer actually...in your backyard. When we went through that hedge, we broke right through into...another world We left your world altogether.' 'Left my world? What are you saying? If we're not in my world, where on earth can we be?' 'Nowhere on earth, not exactly, anyway.' After following her tame deer, Davlin, through a hedge behind her new home, Missy Fletcher finds herself in another world, a world of magical creatures and extraordinary adventures. Missy soon realizes that though Davlin is tame and a deer, he's not like any creature she's ever encountered before. Davlin, a native of Fayria, is royalty, and he's been chosen to lead a quest to find the only thing that can save his wonderful and beloved world of Fayria--the Askar seed. Will Davlin, Missy, and their friends find the hidden seed in time to plant a new tree and protect Fayria, or will Missy's all-too-human choices lead to Fayria's doom? In Beyond the Hedge, author Kristine Wolberg has created a magical world, but one not entirely unlike our own-like ours, this world is under attack from an ancient enemy. In this fast-paced adventure story, Wolberg uses imagery, symbolism and myth to illustrate the importance of distinguishing between good and evil--and choosing rightly between the two. Like Missy, you're never too young to join the fight of good against evil and make a difference in your own world.
