Synopsis

Into the Woods by J. Torres

Bored while visiting his grandmother for the weekend, Rufus, an ordinary ten-year-old boy, ventures into the nearby woods after he spies his young neighbour Penny heading there. A city kid, Rufus quickly loses sight of Penny, but while making his way back to Grammy's, he's drawn to an unusual object he sees hidden inside a tree: it's a totem, carved out of wood and hung on a cord. Rufus places the odd-looking thing around his neck and reads out loud the word inscribed on it: Sasquatch. Suddenly, strange things begin happening all around him - and to him. Rufus doesn't know what's going on, but he's sure of one thing. He'll never be ordinary again!
