The lion of Lark-Hayes manor / Aubrey Hartman ; illustrations by Christopher Cyr.

Hartman, Aubrey, (author.). Cyr, Christopher, (illustrator.).


Poppy Woodlock believes in magic, but so far she hasn't found any. It's been two weeks since her parents moved the family to the Pacific Northwest to undertake their biggest project yet: revitalizing the once-grand Lark-Hayes Manor. Two weeks since Poppy started sixth grade and instantly became... invisible. So Poppy retreats to the place she has always felt more at home: books. Reading ignites her search for the fantastic and supernatural, which must exist in the old Victorian estate. Sure enough, a late-night prowl leads Poppy to discover Old World magic. One reckless bargain with a desperate water nymph later, Poppy has the secret of a lifetime: her very own winged lion. Sampson is exactly what she needs to prove that magic does exist. But the cost of ancient magic is greater than she imagined, and the consequences threaten to unravel the lives of everyone Poppy loves. Fixing the chaos will require her to be clever and bold, and even at her smartest and loudest, she's not sure her plan will be enough. -- Provided by publisher.
