Format: Paperback
This is a really fun book; parents will enjoy it as much as, if not more than, their kids. Peck tells the tale of squirrel warriors fighting a corrupt and oppressive regime. Pinecone is the hero, a poet of all things! Pinecone becomes entangled in the political machinations of the Thane, leader of the Grey squirrel army who is supposed to protect the forest from the fox, coyote, hawk, and other predators, but who instead seeks to oppress the Folk because of their "curse," a strange fold of skin given to their species long ago by the great Creators, called the Wealdend. Throughout Peck's thrilling squirrel warrior battles he challenges the simplicity of standard "good versus evil" tales. Some warriors realize their leader has gone astray while others in good faith try to fulfill their warrior obligations. This is an exciting and meaningful beginning to what I hope will be an ongoing series.

My 14-year-old son absolutely loved this book! He read it in two days, in between school and play practice and eating and sleeping. My son is smart, reads a lot, and only "loves" a few books. He will definitely be reading the next two. This is a great book for readers who like accurate biology (if you understand first that animals don't really talk), books about words, and adventure.

Format: Paperback
I loved every page of this book! Peck's love for biology is evident in this work, and as a biologist myself I thoroughly appreciated his naturalist imagination. I used to pretend things like this as a kid, wondering what secret societies might have existed in the animal world that we had no idea about. This made me feel like a kid again. The characters were well developed, the story flowed seamlessly from one scene to the next and kept the pages turning. I'm definitely going to read this to my kids!
