THISBY THESTOOP and the Black Mountain
(HarperCollins, April 2018)
On any given day, Thisby Thestoop can be found up to her nose in griffin toenails, gnoll spittle, and troll meat (to give to them, not made of them). And now, as the gamekeeper for the Black Mountain dungeon, Thisby has been roped into another job—saving the princess’s skin.
When the prince and princess arrive for a Royal Inspection, Princess Iphigenia winds up lost in the tunnels of the dungeon—without her guards or her younger twin brother—and it’s up to Thisby to guide her safely past the hoards of minotaurs, wyverns, ghouls, and who-knows-what-else that would love nothing more than to nosh the royal highness for dinner.
Thisby and Iphigenia have a dangerous adventure ahead of them. If they’re going to rescue the missing prince, stop a mounting war, and keep safe all the creatures who call the mountain dungeon home, they’ll have to learn how to trust each other.
