Petronella moves to Charis Cottage hidden in the thick dark woods at the bottom of a track on the outskirts of Fort Willow. Everything is perfect. Except for one thing. Since she moved an enormous black tree has appeared in her back garden in the shape of a giant with a big black circle on the ground under it. Petronella finds out it is a deep pit and is terrified to go near its ridge. But one night...
How is the tree linked to:
- The creepy night-time visits by the Hooded Horseman?
- The boy ghost, Percy, Petronella finds in her bed one night?
- The invasion of ghosts of the ancient Strincas population all over Fort Willow?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Kids will like this. Girls will like it for romance and boys will like it for the scare factor." - Ann Klausing, Books-a-Million

"Full of ghosts and ghoulies, this is an imaginative tale." - Bertrams Books

"This was presented as a supernatural chiller and I must admit...it was a fantastic and unique read for MG and YA readers.

"I do think that the author showed wonderful imagination in creating this world and these characters."

Jolene Haley, Librarian, USA

"Petronella & the Trogot is introduced as a supernatural chiller. People who lived almost 1,200 years ago, members of the Strincas civilization, start appearing and living in modern day Fort Willow. Needless to say the Strincas resurrection scares (off) many modern day citizens. If that were not enough, Bentley adds a hooded horseman (think Legend of Sleepy Hollow) and a black, evil monster tree in Petronella's back yard.

"In Part 1 one you get to know Petronella - our protagonist, modern day Fort Willow inhabitants, the Strincas, and the evil Lord Fortesque. In Part 2 Petronella and Percy, a Strinca, investigate the tree and find themselves on a journey. Their journey is similar to Dante's Inferno with a modern twist...

"Let me put my teacher hat on for a minute...I think this novel would be a good companion to students reading Dante's Inferno. As much as I enjoy the Inferno, a lot of time must be spent on background information. Who are all these people in Dante's hell? What did they do? Why did he punish them in this particular way? In Petronella & the Trogot, you know who all the offenders are. I enjoyed reading the novel."

Rebecca Wallace, Educator, USA
