Solid adventure story Well paced and written with action without sacrificing characterization. What a great read Not many books for young readers have this much action and adventure Great for future readers of the Redwall series. I bought this for my grandchildren for Christmas on high recommendations So I quickly read it before I wrapped it It was an entertaining adventure and good vs evil where the right prevails story The main characters are animals with all the same characteristics and dilemmas as humans Reminded me of the Redwall series which I enjoyed with my boys when they were growing up The right always prevails.the most important moral we can teach the next generation. This book was an absolute delight to read aloud and voice to my kiddos Part animated Robin Hood part Princess Bride, the humor, hijinks, and close shaves kept my listeners entertained The concept of good and evil was presented clearly but gently for young listeners I m eager to read the sequel. Ooh, Logan loved this Yeah, it s relatively predictable for those of us who ve read a bazillion fantasy swashbucklers But for Logan, it was a breathless adventure Like so many stories we read, there were things that went over his head, especially since he likes to play while I read aloud, but he got the main story line of a daring fox and an evendaring vixen who have some difficulty getting along

main story line of a daring fox and an evendaring vixen who have some difficulty getting along joining up with their friends to combat a comically evil cat prince Friends include a shy hedgehog and his family, the cat prince s aging aunt, and a well read badger There was a subplot about prejudice against romany wolves read gypsies and intermarriage between them and foxes, but that was pretty uninteresting to Logan I m not sure he even got it But that didn t detract from the heroine rescued and the swashes buckled Reason for Reading Read aloud to the 9yo Both my son and I love animal

Bancroft, Lady Ferball and her companion Rowan along with the clandestine help of certain villagers set out to foil Sir Derek s plans and free the village from his clutches.Comments Both my son and I thoroughly enjoyed this Set in a medieval world the book has a Redwall aura to it but aimed at a much younger audience The separation of good and evil is very clear the good characters are always good and the bad are not just bad but downright nasty We both fell in love with a secondary character called Hotchi witchi, a hedgehog, who ends up joining the gang He s a brave little guy despite his fears and very comical My son also enjoyed Old Amon, the lighthouse keeper, who didn t say a lot but when he did he had the habit having say oh, aye all the time Ds asked what it meant and being from Yorkshire myself I admit to putting on a bit of a broad accent when reading Old Amon s lines so we had ds going around for days saying oh, aye to everything The story is a lot of fun Plenty of action and adventure right from the start and non stop until the end The book is profusely illustrated with wonderfully detailed drawings Not only are there full page illustrations in every chapter but there are also illustrations on the bottom or along the side of some text pages as well You can t go four or five pages without next coming upon an illustration This will certainly make the book friendly to kids who are reluctant to read picture less chapter books The book ends properly with a complete ending but does suggest a sequel which indeed there is, The Curse of the Romany Wolves We will be reading that in the not too distant future Recommended This was a good story, however, I had a hard time with the characters being animals Don t get me wrong, I love a good story with animals as the main characters I feel, though, that you have to walk a fine line when writing human stories played by animals I don t think you should portray them as completely human with the same characteristics I feelcomfortable with animals who are still animals but toy with the human world i.e Beatrix Potter or Kenneth Grahame So that is why I could This was a good story, however, I had a hard time with the

a Childrens YA book I bought it at a show in Charlotte because I have been seeing Christen Slade illustrator for a couple of years at shows and I love his artwork on Corgi That being said, the story was an enjoyable read It is not totally watered down as some children ya books are, there is a little romance, a little mystery and a little action The pencil drawings scattered throughout the book are just icing on the cake. I m usually not a big fan of talking animal books, but this one was very entertaining It s like an action packed, danger filled Wind in the Willows
