I loved most of this book. The end is charming, but kind of a let down. Max is a sturdy Boy Scout from Renton, WA who is also a detective. Inexplicably he finds himself in a mysterious wood, and pairs up with first a talking badger, then a pugnacious cat, and finally an agreeable brown bear, as the four of them seek to escape a group referred to as 'blue cutters.' Max the human child is the brains of the team, the badger the fierce warrior, the cat a crabby troublemaking fighter, and the bear--well, more of a teddy bear personality than a wild bear. Dick Hill reads it wonderfully, giving the animals each a unique voice/accent that captures their characteristics.
