Raised, though not born, in rural New Hampshire, Christine Williamson graduated from Carleton College in 2002 with a BA in biology and her eyes set on a career spent studying marine wildlife. This sunny future, however, was suddenly and irrevocably derailed when she acquired her first manga and embarked upon an abrupt, but serendipitously timed, quest to earn an MFA in Sequential Art from the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont.
Having succeeded in that quest, Christine now resides in the wilds of New England and spends her time playing RPGs with local kids while earning money to placate the demands of two moody cats. It is her fondest wish to one day be able to truthfully say, “I am able to placate those demands with income earned exclusively and entirely from my writing and drawing endeavors.”

This is a great read. It combines the quirky humor found in a Roald Dahl book with the action of an adventure story. Beneath the humor and action is an environmental story for our time. Everyone will enjoy the unique characters and plot twists as Katlyn struggles to save her home from destruction. Be prepared to be swept away into the wonder and magic of "The Yard."

This book is great. I couldn't put it down. It's an easy read but that doesn't take away from the story at all. The story is great and includes a lot of interesting twists. Very original work and is suitable for all ages. I highly recommend this book for everyone.
