Reason for Reading: Read aloud to my 10yo ds.

Both my son and I love animal fantasy and loved The Daring Adventures of Penhaligon Brush that it was obvious that we would read together this sequel.

To save his cub from wolf fever, he must travel far and wide to find Stony Lunacrop, a crucial herb for the cure. Here there be dragons. Sea dragons. Also, a cranky cat with a hilarious accent and a guinea pig with a mohawk. Plus, a reunion of sorts with the terrible fe ...more
Good adventure with pirates, sea serpents and a curse.
I didn't read the first adventure by Rogan so it took a little while to figure out the characters but I really enjoyed the characters from the rogues to the good guys.. It was a fast moving plot. Boys would enjoy the action!
