Show synopsis In the second book of The Dimwood Forest Chronicles the journey of courage and self-discovery continues as Poppy once again enters the dark and mysterious world of Dimwood. Author Avi's colourful creations and characters once again come alive on the pages, bringing with them humour, love and pathos. Upset and sad over the death of her friend Ragweed, Poppy once again journeys through the vast and dark Dimwood Forest to bring the tragic news to Ragweed's family. But when Poppy and her prickly pal, Ereth the porcupine, arrive they find Ragweed's family already in turmoil. The quiet serene valley where Ragweed lived has been flooded by beavers and the mice forced to move for fear of drowning. Together Poppy and Rye, Ragweed's brother, face kidnapping and imprisonment, near death and a daring rescue to fight the beavers. Will they succeed and defeat the beavers? And will Rye manage to step out of Ragweed's shadow and prove himself worthy of Poppy's love?
