"The books celebrate the very meaningful idea of friendship and what it means to forge positive relationships."--Amy Poehler's Smart Girls In the first book of the critically acclaimed four book middle grade series The Nocturnals, we meet three unlikely friends--Dawn, a serious fox, Tobin, a sweet pangolin, and Bismark, the pint sized sugar glider. Discover the friendships, teamwork, and humor, as the Nocturnal Brigade solves the unpredictable mysteries of the night. Animals are disappearing without a trace--and it's up to Dawn, Tobin and Bismark to find out why. With the help of a gentle wombat, a jittery jerboa, a band of coyotes and some kooky bats, the brigade journeys to the depths of the earth where they find themselves in a wacky, high stakes game that will determine all of their survival!
