 Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.



 One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna's thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge--with dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth's surface. And the woman with the Tiger's heart is on the prowl . . . In this New York Times bestselling epic fantasy, a young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon must unlock the dangerous magic buried deep inside. The New York Times Book Review calls The Girl Who Drank the Moon "impossible to put down . . . as exciting and layered as classics like Peter Pan or TheWizard of Oz."

    Kelly Barnhill lives in Minnesota with her husband and three children. She is the author of four novels, most recently The Girl Who Drank the Moon, winner of the Newbery Medal, and the short story collection for adult readers, Dreadful Young Ladies and Other Stories. The Witch's Boy received four starred reviews and was a finalist for the Min­nesota Book Awards. Kelly Barnhill has been awarded writing fellowships from the Jerome Foundation, the Minnesota State Arts Board, and the McKnight Foundation.

YES.



 There is a witch in the woods. There has always been a witch.



 Will you stop your fidgeting for once? My stars! I have never seen such a fidgety child.



 No, sweetheart, I have not seen her. No one has. Not for ages. We've taken steps so that we will never see her.



 Terrible steps.



 Don't make me say it. You already know, anyway.



 Oh, I don't know, darling. No one knows why she wants children. We don't know why she insists that it must always be the very youngest among us. It's not as though we could just askher. She hasn't been seen. We make sure that she will not be seen.



 Of course she exists. What a question! Look at the woods! So dangerous! Poisonous smoke and sink holes and boiling geysers and terrible dangers every which way. Do you think it is so by accident? Rubbish! It was the Witch, and if we don't do as she says, what will become of us?



 You really need me to explain it?



 I'd rather not. She'll kill us all or enslave us all, but in the end it doesn't matter either way. We do our duty. We turn off our hearts. Nothing matters, child. You have to understand that.



 Oh, hush now, don't cry. It's not as though the Council of Elders is coming for you, now is it. You're far too old.



 From our family?



 Yes, dearest. Ever so long ago. Before you were born. He was a beautiful boy.



 Now finish your supper and see to your chores. We'll all be up early tomorrow. The Day of Sacrifice waits for no one, and we must all be present to thank the child who wi
