Little Yau wants nothing more than for the Wise Ones to teach her the great secrets of the mountains. But when her best friend, Trupp, is in grave danger, Yau's dreams are nearly forgotten in her quest to help him. Only one thing will save Trupp, and only Yau has seen where it is. (Not even the Wise Ones know.) But finding it means venturing into the treacherous world of humans!
Bestselling author-illustrator Janell Cannon introduces the endearing Little Yau in a story about loyalty and friendship that brims with humor, emotion, and suspense. The world is a big place--is Little Yau ready?
