Product description

Review

'Following the perilous adventures of a family of voles, this is a really thrilling piece of storytelling.' (Korky Paul, Sunday Express S Magazine)

'A gripping and moving tale for children.' (Martin Chilton, Telegraph)

'Just the sort of book I would have loved as a child.' (Gill Lewis, author of Sky Hawk)

'Moorhouse's lyrical prose is captivating and this is without doubt a truly exceptional piece of storytelling.' (Teach Primary)

'Read the book... You won't regret it, I promise. There's a world to remember here.' (The Bookbag)

'It reminds me of Watership Down, but with water voles instead of rabbits, and personally I think The Rising is better.' (Cool Kids' Creations, The Guardian)

'This book is packed with detail about water voles and their habitat yet the detail never seems forced, enhancing rather than overtaking the story.' (Edd Bankes, Armadillo Magazine)

'Ecologist Tom Moorhouse transports us into a colourful world in this follow-up to The River Singers' (BBC Wildlife)

'Both gripping and moving' (Carousel)

'It's really really difficult to write animal stories which do justice to the nature of the animal and the human need for a human story...Tom Moorhouse has managed to produce yet another compelling story.' (Melanie McDonagh, 'Children's books for Christmas', Spectator)

Book Description

An epic tale of adventure, courage, and survival.
