3comments
One of the best-reviewed New Zealand books lately has been Brian Falkner's 'Northwood'.
Cecilia Undergarment is a girl who loves animals.  When she finds a neglected dog, she wants to help...so how does she end up flying in a balloon over a dark and scary forest?  A forest where black lions prowl?  Is there any way to get home?
'Northwood is on the New Book stand this week, and will be enjoyed by senior readers who like mystery, adventure, and imagination. 
Watch the trailer and read the book!
