As Hallowe’en draws near, 10-year-old Bridget Anne, nicknamed Dragonfly, hears unearthly noises drifting up from the basement of her Uncle Henry’s funeral home. Impetuously jumping down a laundry chute to satisfy her curiosity, Dragonfly finds herself in the subterranean land of Harvest Moon, where morning never comes, where autumn leaves never desert the trees - for it is constantly Hallowe’en night. Threading her way through this perilous realm of monsters, vampires, werewolves, and worse, Dragonfly must find a way to rescue the human children imprisoned by Harvest Moon’s dark masters - and to thwart an invasion of the surface world.
Primarily for adults, Dragonfly may also be enjoyed by precocious younger listeners. It is a story told in celebration of the wonder, nostalgia, and eerie delight of childhood Hallowe’ens, when jack-o’-lanterns flicker and things go bump in the night.
