Author Website:

“Returning residents of the valley are joined by an azure swamp mermaid, slumbering giant, and a night of friendship, fun, and fireworks that lights up the brilliantly hued summer sky.”

“Porta brings the ungainly charm of his three previous seasonally themed Hidden Valley outings to this (probable) closer, filling out the ensemble cast with further unconventional characters and leaving Aqua, Olivier, the dragon, and all the rest gathered at a festive banquet beneath moonlit trees.”
