This sounds like an adult interpretation of what is, on the surface, a children's tale, but there is much here for adult to enjoy, not just someone like me who reads the series for the sake of nostalgia! The plight of the animals, here the natural but no-less-deadly threat of starvation and cold, draws out the best and worst of the creatures of White Deer Park.
A wonderful read - but again if you didn't like the first book, or weren't enthralled by these or the animated series as a youth, you may find the story lacking compared to novels written purposefully for adults.
This book is a great follow up and has great suspense as well as danger that keeps you hooked and rooting for the animals to survive. We see more character development and moments for the likes of Fox, Badger and Kestrel in particular.
A superb book that is just as strong as the first in the series.
This sequel charts the adventures of the gallant band of Farthing Wood escapees in their new home - the nature reserve called White Deer Park. Now that the characters have been established, there is more depth (especially snow!) to their adventures during a bitterly cold winter and the warden of the reserve, and his cat, feature prominently. Many would consider this book to be a finer achievement than its better known predecessor.
