2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ancient Mariner on 26 Mar. 2015
Format: Paperback
This is obviously an excellent book, but here's what might be an interesting thought. There are lots of books with animal characters, but in very few of them do you really feel like the characters are those animals, (as opposed to just characters that have been put into animal bodies). For example, the one complaint I read in reviews of Brian Jacques' "Redwall" series is that scale is always way off, and characters don't act like the animals they are supposed to be.

Here, the rats are rats and the mice are mice. They think, behave and cope just like you would expect sentient, intelligent rats and mice to act. So, in addition to the charm of the story and the appeal of the characters as such, you also get a chance to really appreciate the creativity that went into conceiving and writing the book. Fun bonus.

A Darn Good Read 1 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is a little bit child-like, what with the talking animals and all, but it is a very imaginitive book that is a whole lot of fun to read. Great to just pick up and read for a lazy afternoon.
