This is a magical story about a very special girl called Little Yaga, who belongs to an extraordinary race of forest people. Little Yaga lives with her grandmother, Big Yaga, in a special hut, deep in a mysterious forest ruled by the evil Scraggard the Immortal.
The forest folk keep away from humans, you see although they look similar at first glance, they are different, and besides humans smell funny. It is this strange smell which first alerts Little Yaga to the presence of a human girl called Ashley. The trouble is, despite Little Yaga’s attempt at disguising her, she is not the only one who realises that Ashley is there, Scraggard has discovered her, and he wants her energy for himself!
Despite the fact that she knows how difficult it is going to be, Little Yaga still helps Ashley to escape. Together they defy the odds, and the magical deceitfulness of the forest, where everything is not as it seems, and as a friendly thank you Ashley invites Little Yaga to her birthday party. However deep in the forest, at his palace Scraggard is very angry, he has decided he wants her, and being naturally evil decides to use all his devious means to ensure that his plan succeeds, after all no one escapes the clutches of Scraggard the immortal.
Devastated, Ashley’s boyfriend Eric decides he must rescue her. At Big Yaga’s very strange Hut on a chicken leg, Eric, Ashley’s brother Sean, Little Yaga and her friends Kikimra, make their plans and discover the strange secret to killing the supposedly immortal Scraggard.
Fearlessly, the intrepid group set of on an amazing adventure. However, as Little Yaga and Kikimra try to warn them, and Eric and Sean are soon to discover, nothing in the forest is as it seems. Unbelievably, the land itself holds secret powers, there are magical birds, strange animals, and things you could never imagine live there, waiting to trap the unsuspecting traveller…
I found myself thoroughly immersed in this fantastic adventure, each page reveals new dangers which the courageous group have to face as they battle the elements, creatures and Scraggard’s shape shifting army, to save Ashley from a terrible fate.
Will they succeed, or will the forest and the army foil their rescue attempt?
This magical story will keep you compulsively turning the pages as the answers reveal themselves, with surprises waiting around every corner, right until the very end.
