It's a wonderful chapter book for ages 8-11 and a great story to share with younger readers. Review from Scribendi Editor:"...I loved this! It's a really strong piece of work that ticks all the boxes: it's got fantasy, adventure, it's got a clear moral, it's got jeopardy and excitement, it's got overcoming adversity... and all done with an innocent and non-violent tale. Not to mention it educates the audience about animals. It's clear, it's fun, and it holds the interest all the way through. Super! What's not to love here? The characters are strong and individual, the prose is nicely and simply constructed, the narrative is neatly divided into digestible chapters with great cliffhanger endings, and it's all just a lot of fun!"
