What's Shine Mountain About

Publisher Summary

On his deathbed, Ellie’s pop reveals a secret—a magical button-box. It’s a musical instrument from the Gleam country—a land far from Spit Farm and the mountains, with talking goats, sweet grass, and corn that grows so high you have to fell it with an axe. But the button-box’s magic is sinister. When Ellie plays it, flowers bloom and crops spring up overnight—but soon the farm is cursed by drought and her beloved oma is gravely ill. To save her oma and discover the truth about her own identity, Ellie must embark on a dangerous journey to the Gleam country—the only place where the evil button-box can be destroyed.
