We are thrilled to announce the release of The Beast of Hushing Wood, a new adventure story by Booked Out’s award-winning author and illustrator, Gabrielle Wang.
Deep in the forests of of Dell Hollow roams eleven year-old Ziggy Truegood, a true child of nature drawn to the strange and hidden beauty of the woods. Over time, Ziggy begins to sense that something is hunting her, a premonition that she will drown on her twelfth birthday.
Then Raffi and his grandfather arrive in town and Ziggy finds herself strangely drawn to them. But are they her rescuers or her hunters?
The Beast of Hushing Wood is a fable of courage, bound in mysticism and detailing the triumph of a young girl in the face of adversity and change. A blend of adventure and imaginative realism, Gabrielle’s latest book is both engaging and thought-provoking.
An honor to be working with such an inspiring talent.
Congratulations, Gabrielle – we can’t wait to read it!
