1 The main character is Navajo, and her name is Nizhoni.

2 When Nizhoni’s dad is kidnapped, Nizhoni has to save him from monsters. Did I mention she can see monsters?

 3 To do that she has to get 4 items and pass 4 trials. Her brother and her best friend accompany her.

4 Kids will like this book because it’s really cool and it tells the legends of the Navajo and those are really cool. I especially like the one about  Mr Yazzie!

5 This is presented as an own voice book, though the author notes they are not Navajo, but from another tribe. Their family is from Navajo tribe. Definitely recommend reading the author note at end of book!
