The Longer Reason

Lasky is the author of over one hundred books for children and young adults, including the Guardians of Ga'Hoole series, which has more than eight million copies in print and was turned into a major motion picture, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. Her books have received numerous awards, including a Newbery Honor, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, and a Washington Post-Children's Book Guild Nonfiction Award.

The Secrets of Glendunny is a sweeping animal adventure with loyal beavers, a cultured swan, and ominous lynxes around every turn.

Deep in the wilds of Scotland, the land of ancient warrior kings and myths, a secret colony of beavers have been hiding in plain sight. The beavers' safety and livelihood depend on them not being discovered by humans. For centuries, no one had seen a beaver in Scotland or England until the young beaver kit, Dunwattle, is sighted! Dunwattle is disturbed by the presence of a ghostly figure, a young girl. In his panic, he strays far from the den to uncover the mysteries of this ghost and becomes destined to be destroyed for revealing their hidden colony. Yet Dunwattle's best friend, Locksley, is just as determined to save him. Will this ancient colony be obliterated?

Kirkus Reviews gave it a starred review "An intricately plotted, wonderfully realised adventure involving all the creatures of the pond… There is evil, betrayal, cruelty, loss, compassion, kindness, a touch of humour, and heart-stopping adventure."
