Just in time for summer here is my new middle-grade novel, "The Hollow Under the Tree." In 1925 Sadie Menken, a piemaker's daughter, discovers a lion hiding in Toronto's High Park. * Here are some nice reviews: "A beautiful story. This novel will have every animal lover wanting their own personal 'Sunny'." Resource Links. * "Highly recommended. Young readers will definitely enjoy this novel which takes them to a different time in urban Toronto, a time when children could roam the streets to find adventure in the local park." CM Magazine * "An excellent read. Equally suitable as a read-aloud or as a choice for independent reading, this short chapter book will please animal enthusiasts and readers of tales about brave girls alike. Kirkus Reviews

I have purchased this book and can't wait to read it. Cary Fagan is a favourite author of mine. He really nails a child's POV.
