Although this book is primarily for kids, I found it to be fun. I liked it right from the beginning, when a cute little mouse named Gus was saved from some frightening alley rats by a very unusual wolf. Gus and other interesting animals must get past the dangerous beasts of the Shadow Mountains to find sanctuary on the Emerald Isle, a scary journey! As an allegory (which people like Tolkien would not like), this is really quite well done.
