It's time for Grayling to be a hero. Her mother, a "wise woman"-a sort of witch-has been turned into a tree by evil forces. Tangles and toadstools! Lacking confidence after years of being called "Feeble Wits" by her mother, Grayling heads off dubiously into the wilds in search of help, where she finds a weather witch, an aromatic enchantress, a cheese soothsayer, a slyly foolish apprentice, and a shape-shifting mouse named Pook!

"Talk about vocal variety, stamina, and drama. Katherine Kellgren's narration is full of them all, and in spades! As listeners meet Grayling, she is returning from collecting herbs for her mother, a healing woman. With the shock of discovering her mother rooted to the ground, Grayling embarks on a journey to find her mother's grimoire (spell book) and to free her and others who are similarly "treed" from the magic. Along the way, Grayling gathers a weather witch, a shape- shifting mouse, a glamorous enchantress, and a bumbling wizard--all made memorable by Kellgren's infusions of personality. From velvety whispers to ear-piercing yells, Kellgren is at her best. As narrator, she sets an atmospheric, mystical mood. In addition, Kellgren has created original music for each of Grayling's songs. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
