I enjoyed the return to the rural setting of Fennywolde (last visited during Jarvis' The Crystal Prison) and this book actually succeeded in having likeable characters that you were interested in. The main problem is that it just doesn't have an antagonist. Obviously Jarvis was holding off until the introduction of Jupiter in the original Deptford Mice Trilogy, but it leaves you with an "Is that all?" feeling at the end.

I can kind of understand why the Deptford Mouselets series went out of print, but for Jarvis fans, you should track this one down.
