by Carol Howard
In a far away land, nestled in a green valley near the nutmeg forest sits the quaint town of Nutmeg, where Frederick and Clara have lived with their parents all their lives. When the king announces a royal baking contest with a purse of gold as a prize, the children want nothing more than to enter and help their poor parents. But to get the best nutmeg in the land, they must venture deep into the forest, where no one dares to go…
Determined to win the prize, they sneak out of their cottage early one morning and begin their journey deep into the nutmeg forest.
