Editorial Reviews

Review

Yok feels both clever and genuinely moving... A delicious read.” (Boston Globe)

From the Back Cover

In Yok, Mollisan Town's seediest neighborhood, Fox Antonio Ortega, Erik Gecko, Mike Chimpanzee, and Vincent Hare are trapped by ignorance, poverty, mediocrity, and their own insecurities. Yet there is a glimmer of hope, a chance that they can overcome their desperate circumstances and gain the freedom to achieve their dreams. The handsome fox yearns for true love; the gecko seeks redemption and freedom from his abusive brothers; the chimpanzee burns for success; and the hare seeks the secret to a meaningful life. But when they get close to their desires, will happiness slip out of reach, or can they find the power to grab what they want?

Mollisan Town is unlike any world ever created in literature. Within its colorful streets dwell the desires, dark sides, hopes, and expectations of its plush inhabitants. From romance to ambition, jealousy to despair, the stuffed animals of Yok must grapple with the most human of emotions. The tension mounts within these four gripping tales, and each character's journey leads to a truth that reveals something about the animals of this alternate world—and about ourselves.

Yok is different from the other books in the Mollison series, as it is a collection of novellas rather than a single plot. But it is still a very coherent book that paints an amazing picture of the impoverished neighborhood of the town. All of the stories are great, with in depth characterization and good plots. There are a number of characters and references that pop up from the other books in the series, and many small details that highlight Davys' ability to create a surprisingly complete and human world (despite the fact that it is populated by stuffed animals).

Part of me thinks this book is the perfect ending to the so-called "Mollison Town Quartet", but part of me wishes Davys would write more in the series.

I was hesitant at first. This is the first book that I have read from the series, and I was worried that the characters being stuffed animals would be overplayed. That is definitely not the case. Tim Davys's noir-like vignettes are fresh and exciting.
