Product Description An enchanting woodland tale about bravery and friendship from a debut author-illustrator. Julius and Macy like to play heroes. Julius pretends he’s the defender of the forest, while Macy has a quieter strength. When their snack disappears one night, they decide to track down the only one who could have taken it―the Night Goblin. They both have to be brave in their own ways, and they ultimately discover that the real thief isn’t anything like they imagined. With its endearing characters, this gently told tale reminds us that we each have courage within us and that kindness can make all the difference.
