Olivia Brophie and the Pearl of Tagelus, the first in a middle-grade fantasy series set in the wilds of central Florida. Author Chris Tozier was selected as a 2011 State of Florida Artist Fellowship recipient and his poetry has appeared widely. The book is fast paced, larger than life and filled with lessons on Florida habitat, above and below the ground. Olivia Brophie feels betrayed. Her dad sent her to live with her crazy aunt and uncle in the middle of nowhere—the Florida scrub. It seems boring till bears follow her to school, coral snakes leave her gifts, and tree frogs start writing cryptic messages on her bedroom window. Along with Doug, a local eco-nerd genius, and Gnat, her videogame-obsessed little brother, Olivia discovers a vast underworld city that holds secrets.
