This is book number 2 in the League of Ursus series.


A dark middle-grade fantasy, featuring Spark the teddy bear and her team of toys banding together to save their human owners from a sinister threat

After the dramatic events of Spark and the League of Ursus, everything seems to be returning to normal . . . until Spark is summoned before the mysterious Grand Sleuth, the high council of teddy bears. Its members, who haven’t been heard from in decades, task Spark with locating and closing the portals to the monsters’ domain.

During her investigation, Spark discovers that the Grand Sleuth is not what it seems: to save themselves, they have formed a terrible alliance with an army of monsters. Once again, the intrepid teddy must enlist the help of her fearful friends to stop the Grand Sleuth from ripping a hole between worlds so big that it can never be repaired. Meanwhile, Spark realizes that harnessing the growing power of Loretta, her owner, may be the key to saving them all . . .

Featuring a new cast of characters, fresh settings, and lots of action, thrills, and humor, this exciting installment in the League of Ursus series is sure to delight fans of Toy Story and Stranger Things, kids who love monsters and magic, and anyone who’s ever squeezed a teddy close at night.
