Tierfantasy ist ja sowieso meiner Meinung nach immer etwas, das ganz schnell schief gehen kann, wenn man sich als Leser z.B. einfach nicht mit dem Tier, das vermenschlicht wird, anfreunden kann. Allerdings fand ich das Cover zum ersten „Weasels“-Band so lustig und dachte mir, ich probiere dieses Buch einfach mal aus. Leider

This is a book series I read and loved as a child, but haven’t picked up in a long time. I was a little worried that it wouldn’t have aged as well as I would have hoped – you know how it is with some things you read or watched as a child: you think they’re wonderful when you’re 10 but not so much as you get older.

I guess there were some elements of this that weren’t as good as I remember. I am a good 15 years older though, and my tastes/reading age have changed quite a

A lovely animal fantasy story, similar basis to Brian Jacques Redwall series - a bit like a combination of Redwall and Robin Hood really.

Obviously this is targetted towards the young adult readership, but I do feel it is a little over simplified in places - such as how the sheriff is always on their tail on their quests, but when the weasels are home in half moon wood having loud celebrations, he's somehow never around hmm.

I'm also not that impressed with how rats are made out to be evil creatu

Not a bad series, but it's frankly a rip-off of the Redwall series (cross with Sherlock Holmes) by Brian Jacques, and Brian Jacques did it better (Brian Jacques actually has a balanced cast of characters, and his main character isn't just a male Gary Stu).
Not badly written, but needs a heck of a lot more to be brilliant.

I picked up the first 3 of this series at a used bookstore while on vacation. I've never heard of them before, but I think they may be just the think to feed my childhood love of Rats of NIMH.

Awesome fun! Must read the rest of the series sometime soon :) My only quibble would be it was a bit simplistic at times - they got out of some of those scrapes awfully easily xD

Good introduction to another land of animal conflict. The story flows through each book of the series. At first glance, Weasels are probably not an animal from which you might create a hero.
