JOURNEY BEYOND THE BURROW is out TODAY!

WOOT! JOURNEY BEYOND THE BURROW by Rina Heisel, the first book I ever sold as an agent, has just been released by Harper Childrens! I’m so excited to see this classic, heart-warming tale out in the world! This middle grade animal adventure is destined to become a children’s classic, and is already a JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD GOLD STANDARD SELECTION and an AMAZON EDITOR’S PICK!

Here’s the blurb about the book:

With the adventure of Avi’s Poppy series and the heart of A Wolf Called Wander, this charming and exciting middle grade adventure follows one mouse’s journey to save his baby brother from a sinister evil.

There are rules every mouse must follow if they’re to survive in the forest.

Tobin knows these guidelines by heart. After all, with one younger sibling, another on the way, and a best friend with a penchant for trouble-making, he needs to be prepared for anything.

But one stormy night, Tobin’s safe burrow is invaded by monstrous arachnids, and his baby brother stolen away. To save him, Tobin will have to do something he’s never done before: break the rules.

Drawing inspiration from the author’s work as a natural science documentarian, Journey Beyond the Burrow is as alive as the forest floor, where nature is unpredictable, occasionally frightening, and inspirational all the same.

(Includes a gorgeous black-and-white illustrated front piece by Paul Canavan.)

Here is just some of the advance praise for JOURNEY BEYOND THE BURROW:

“A heart-pounding, paw-thumping adventure featuring a tiny hero with a giant heart.”
— Jan Eldredge, author of Evangeline of the Bayou

“Such a fabulous combination of heartwarming and twisty-turny! There are plenty of daring escapes and close calls to keep readers on the edges of their seats.”  — Kate Albus, author of A Place to Hang the Moon

“The cliffhanger chapters had us gasping for “one more!” And the laugh-out-loud moments provided much-needed comic relief to break up the rollercoaster ride.”  — Ben Gartner, author of The Eye of Ra and Sol Invictus

“Although there is peril aplenty for the young mice, the gentle spirit of Heisel’s writing will keep young readers in suspenseful wonder.”   — Alysa Wishengrad, author of The Verdigris Pawn

“Heisel takes readers on a high-octane mouse-eye view of a daring rescue. A delightful, detailed adventure in which a trio of mice become heroes.” — Kirkus Reviews

And JOURNEY BEYOND THE BURROW is even out on audio! Perfect for the little ones to enjoy on long car rides!
