Sometimes grown-ups tell scary stories to teach kids a lesson, but once in a while, those frightening yarns turn out to be true. When Sarah, Jay, and Rene wander off into the bush despite their Grandma’s dire warnings, they find out the hard way how real her fairy tale is. Combining a suspenseful adventure with a dose of good humor, this narrative features a valuable and traditional message of respect for the outdoors.
