From School Library Journal
Grade 3–5—In this lovely and fitting conclusion to a popular series, Poppy's husband, Rye, dies, and the grieving deer mouse refuses to see anyone. Then Ereth needs her help, and in the process of saving the porcupine, she is thrown into the air and flown to a cave by a young bat. Thinking she is dead, Ereth plans her funeral. Meanwhile, a fire breaks out in Dimwood Forest. Seen through animals' points of view, the story takes readers through Poppy's adventures, including being aided by her former enemy, Bounder the fox, as she tries to get home to warn the others of the danger. Ereth stays true to his character—pompous and curmudgeonly—yet devastated when he thinks he's lost Poppy, while she remains the eternal optimist and, in the end, is able to move on with her life. This heartwarming fantasy is filled with fast-moving action and danger, and has themes of friendship and loss. Fans of the series will be completely satisfied.—Kira Moody, Hunter Public Library, West Valley City, UT

In this sixth and final adventure in the Poppy series, the dear mouse’s husband, Rye, succumbs to pneumonia, and Poppy is accidentally flung into the air and carried away by a young bat. Ereth the porcupine concludes that Poppy has perished, and begins planning her funeral. Poppy’s grandson Spruce, less convinced of her demise, sets off to search on his own. Series fans will enjoy spending time with these endearing characters, and the end leaves the door open just a crack for further adventures. With much series backstory woven into the narrative, this stands alone; but fans won’t want to miss any of these tales. Grades 3-5. --Kay Weisman

You can't imagine how much my Grade 3 children ( 8/ 9 year olds) just adore the 4th book by Avi, Poppy and Ereth. This book was so exciting and scary and both boys and girls were so anxious as I read these last chapters as they thought that Ereth was going to die. The author's development of Ereth's character has been so exciting. As a teacher I do a lot of language work based around these fantastic books. I have bought a soft toy, porcupine and the children love taking their turns to hold Ereth as I read the book. We will start book 5 next term as we are about to go on school holidays. I would love to contact the author Avi, but am not sure how to??
