There are evil entities lurking deep in the Dark and Dreadful Forest.They wear black hoods at night and disappear in day. But they don't know of the wooded hiding place of young Timmy Tallent. And they don't know that he sees them,late at night,plotting their snatchings and murders. Indeed,this evil frightens him to his core. But a tiny black cat--fabled in Egyptian lore-–may be Timmy's only hope.
