To be honest, had I seen this book on the shelves of a bookshop or library, I would probably not have picked it up. And that would have been a big mistake. However, I have a high regard for Mr Wombat, a Twitter pal and so I ventured into the realms of Warren Peace. Do read this book. Please. These are not little furry animals with human voices. They have their own voices and are totally endearing. Except for the furry 'baddies'. I 'saw' this story unfolding in my head, as in a film. Harrison For ...more

Such a wonderfully written story. Very funny, sad, and different type of book for me to read. I'm usually only reading romance novels....this has everything & kept my interest in finding out what would happen. Would recommend this book for everyone to read.

DISCLAIMER: I received a free copy of this book from a Good Reads Giveaway for review purposes. Now that the lawyers are happy, on to the review.

An endearing and funny book.

Whenever a story involves sentient animals, it's a struggle to keep them relatable without turning them into tiny humans in fur suits. Warren Peace manages this balance well. The rabbits are still rabbit-y, the foxes vulpine, and the cats feline, but you'll still find yourself rooting for your favorites. Individual character

An excellent read with very vivid and life-like characters, which is remarkable given that they are rabbits, cats, and foxes. Wombat has a gift for characterisation and dialogue. Recommended!

Well I wrote the thing, so I think it's brilliant.
Alex Brightsmith
I started this book a little tentatively, and only partly because I wasn’t entirely sure about ‘a book about talking animals’. Mainly it was because, for reasons that will become apparent to anyone who reads it, I really, really wanted to like it, and I knew I was in a hypercritical mood.
I don’t know why I was worried, though. As someone who already knows Michael Wombat’s writing from his various blogs and from Twitter, I should have had more confidence that his warmth and charm, and his assured

When I read, it is imperative I can put myself in the book. The most productive way to do this is through description. From the very first sentence to the very end...I was caught up in the vivid and detailed descriptions. The characters, the environment, everything about the book evokes my imagination and had me actively participating in the story.
I am anxious to share this book with family and friends. It is well written and even though it did have a few "unsavory" moments...once I picked it up

This is a brilliant, fun read. You can read it to your kids but read it for yourself too. My favourite parts are Malley's attempts to speak a foreign language. Oh and the rabbits way of counting which has already made it into my family vocabulary! I'd like to read more of these characters, I really think a series would be popular. Mr Wombat, thanks for sharing with us and keep posting the pics of the real life characters!

I don't know if this is intended to be a children's story but, at the age of 72, I found it rivetting.

Wonderful characterisation and anthropomorphism. Splendid writing. Most excellent.

But what I really want to know is this - is Michael Wombat the author's real name? I have a wife who is fascinated by wombats and I am not sure to tell her that they can write books. :-)

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down once I started. It is a story of an average little joe that becomes a hero while he is just trying to help his friends. He overcomes his fears and with the help of newfound friends (and lifelong ones also) stands up to his enemy...and prevails!
L.R. David
What a delightful tail(!) a thrilling story, which clearly wears its influences from Kurosawa on it's virtual Kindle sleeve. A great balance of action and humour, sharply drawn characters and nicely pitched dialogue. And it suffused with northern charm and wit. Belting.
Aven
Amusing, fast-paced, and quite touching in places. I quite like the heroic cats, myself. A good adventure story with satisfyingly nasty villains and a cute hero--what more could you want? :)
Becky
A gripping adventure as a colony of rabbits seek unlikely allies to save them from a savage group of foxes. Both dramatic and funny in turn. Hard to put down
Kate
Brilliantly funny, touching and full of genuine warmth for the characters. One that I'll definitely be passing onto my older kids.

It was an imaginative adventure! Very well done Sir Wombat, I greatly enjoyed your book!

Abducted by pirates at the age of twelve he quickly rose to captain the feared privateer ‘The Mrs. Nesbitt’ and terrorised the Skull Coast throughout his early twenties. Narrowly escaping ...more
