Serafina and the Twisted Staff,
by Robert Beatty
'The main characters in this story had many dangerous adventures to save their friends and family from the evil within. I absolutely loved the book and I would recommend it to anyone who likes adventure, mystery, mischief, and friendship.
My favorite part of the book was definitely the ending when all of the catamounts battled the coyotes, they race to get Breaden back from the evil mistress, and when Serafina finally envisioned herself as the black one - you will understand what that means if you decide to read the book!
I give this book a 5 bulldog review.
