"The books celebrate the very meaningful idea of friendship."—Amy Poehler's Smart Girls

In the fourth middle grade chapter book, The Hidden Kingdom, animals in the valley start to trip on the crumbling ground beneath them, water disappears, and strange voices are heard. Everyone assumes the forest is under a spell. However, it’s a group of veiled creatures—a chameleon, stick bugs, leaf bugs, and other assorted camouflaged insects—that are upset because they want the valley’s recognition for their hard work in preventing a drought. The Nocturnal Brigade—Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark—solves this mystery and unites the forest.
