Tilly's Adventures in Cheyanne Forest is the first book in the Cheyanne Forest Trilogy by Catharina Steel. Tilly is excited to visit Opa, her grandfather, and spend some days in his secluded home in the Cheyanne Forest alongside her cousins, Jess and Zach. However, after the kids arrive at Opa's, they are surprised to discover that the Cheyanne Forest is full of magical creatures and derived its name from a nineteenth-century explorer who had last been seen a hundred years back. Trained by Opa's friends in the art of goblin fighting and potion making, Tilly, Jess, and Zach take it upon themselves to search for Cheyanne in the Deep Forest and retrieve his collection of mysterious books. But doing so brings them into direct confrontation with Cleo, the evil witch, and a host of other creatures.
