She's the one, after all, who was tasked with keeping her sister safe after they lost their parents.

About the Author
No One Returns from the Enchanted Forest is Robin Robinson's author-illustrator debut, after drawing The City on the Other Side with writer Mairghread Scott. Robin lives in a house that looks like someone threw a Halloween party in a library and forgot to clean up afterward. The pet rats only add to this impression.
