The series ranks alongside similar books such as Duncton Wood and Watership Down but is less familiar to the majority of readers.
Mute swans from Abbotsbury Swannery and dolphins are two of the species that are not land creatures that feature in this final book of this Wessex tremendous trilogy.
I generally like reading stories which involve animals. When I realised that the book concerned the Red Squirrels on Brownsea Island, I was especially enchanted. Many years ago I visited the island and was hoping to see a Red Squirrel but only saw signs of the food they ate.
The characters of the Red Squirrels portrayed were easy to identify with - the joy and the sadness touched you. It was a compelling read. You must read the trilogy! I wondered where the power came from in the stick? I wondered too if there are any Red Squirrels left in Portland as mentioned! Grey Squirrels have always been the bad guys as long as I can remember but one enjoys seeing them leaping from one tree to another. The tale implies that they can change. I enjoyed the straightforward story without looking for any deeper symbolism though it did cross my mind with the sign of the fish whether it showed one that Christianity overcomes evil. It's a most enjoyable book in the same league as Ring of Bright Water and Tarka the Otter.
