On a rainy day at Lumberjanes camp, the Roanokes explore tabletop gaming (with bonus magic!), and the underground tunnels beneath the Mess Hall.
The woods surrounding Miss Qinzella Penniquiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types are home to more incredible magical critters and beings than anyone could possibly imagine...unfortunately, on this particular day, it's pouring rain, and each and every 'Jane has been tasked with just one job: stay inside, stay dry, and DON'T get into trouble. Confined to the Mess Hall, Jo and Molly give tabletop roleplaying a try, while Ripley, April, and Mal venture a little further afield after discovering a secret tunnel beneath the Kitchens...and the colossal prehistoric bug that lives there! Hey, they're not technically outside, right?
This New York Times bestseller and Eisner award-nominated series is written by awesome all-star Noelle Stevenson (Nimona) and brilliant newcomer Grace Ellis, and illustrated by the tremendously talented Brooke Allen (A Home for Mr. Easter).
Target age: 9-12
