Description


There's a deep, dark hole in Naji's yard and it's full of secrets. But will the girl's curiosity lead her to answers, or disaster? When Naji wakes to a strange sound she discovers a group of workers digging a hole just outside her room. Filled with intrigue, she wonders what they'll find at the bottom. Sleeping monsters? Skeletons and curses?Her father warns her to stay away. The worksite is no place for a child, and if she isn't careful, she'll be snatched up by a Looloo; mythical creatures that lurk in the shadows. Summoning her courage, Naji decides to investigate-until a terrible event leaves the whole neighborhood panicking. Have the terrifying Looloos struck again? As it turns out, the answer is far more surprising than Naji and her father could ever imagine. Based on a true story, this award-winning middle-grade chapter book includes a glossary, study projects, and discussion questions. Join Naji on a suspense-filled exploration of Persian culture and folklore as she learns that sometimes, the best adventures are waiting right under your nose. Lexile(R) Measures 690L.
