This is an enjoyable story that is difficult to classify. The vocabulary places it above the level of a children's' book, except perhaps for very bright kids with very patient parents willing to define words. For young adults and adults the theme is a bit worn: conservation good, rapaciousness bad. What made the story work for me were the characters, who exemplified a broad spectrum of human traits. The story was reasonably rich in human (via animal characters) behaviors ranging from Machiavellianism to altruism. I give it a solid four stars.
