Back cover copy

Words can be dangerous.

My name is Poppy Fields. When we offered to help out at our local literary festival, Graham and I had no idea just how murky the world of children's books really was. Before you could say crime novel, the authors were receiving anonymous threats. Then fiction started turning into fact.

Poppy Fields is on the case!
