Editorial Reviews


Prolific funnyman Whybrow's first meerkat adventure is a goofy mix of misunderstandings and mayhem… -- Kirkus Reviews

"Hearn's lively illustrations magnify the silliness of the meerkats' antics and their inadvertent cleverness." - Publisher's Weekly

Format: Paperback
Uncle Fearless was tending to the motherless meerkats, Skeema, Little Dream, and Mimi. Their mother, Princess Fragrant, has been "taken by a wild dog" when they were wee things. They remembered that Flower had nursed them, but most of all they loved Uncle Fearless. They were getting ready to head to the Upworld and he tried to reassure them that everything would be just fine. Uncle Fearless would often tell them about his Glory Days, those fantastic days when he met up with the blah blahs and the oolooks. They were strange creatures who were led by Chief Click-click and there were really unusual things like vroom vrooms.

"I'm not making this up!" declared Uncle Fearless, but no one believe him except his little ones. Ever since the eagle owl attack took out his eye and practically killed him he was a nobody to the Sharpeyes. Queen Heartless no longer wanted him as king and took his younger brother, Chancer, as king. Uncle Fearless was nothing but an old washed up babysitter who made up stories. He was once a fearless king, but no one believed this one-eyed fool. "We're going on an adventure," exclaimed Little Dream. They had dug up a mysterious egg chamber and crossing the desert to see those blah blahs and oolooks would prove that Uncle Fearless was really a king. Was he really a king or just a BIG liar?

This a fabulously fun and zany adventure with Uncle Fearless and the meerkat pups. Uncle Fearless and his "adopted" pups are considered to be a bunch of misfits in Sharpeye society, but the discerning young reader instinctively knows that the old meerkat is no fool. Of course the trick is, is to cross that mighty desert and prove to everyone that his Glory Days were the real thing.
