Preview of Chapter 5
"It's a Tree Snagret!" Ruby yelled. The Tree Snagret just stood there, looking at the fearful Pikmin, who were cowering under it. This wasn't like any other Snagret they had seen. It was twice the size of a Pileated Snagret, its scales were brown and the feathers on its head were green.
"Nobody...move..." Ruby whispered. The other Pikmin didn't need to be told that: they were too frightened to move.

"No, Ignis, DON'T!" Ruby cried.
