it was amazing

This is a 4.5 star read.

Wow! What an awesome little prequel novelette that introduces us to the characters and world that is The Western Lands and All That Really Matters. Aimed at middle school (primary school here in Australia) I really think this could be enjoyed by all ages.
The world building us quite unique with both humans and animals treated as equal citizens and the animals talking. So far it looks to be an agrarian world with ruling Royals ensconced in a castle and grounds. I absolutely loved our protagonist Princess Eloise, who begins our adventure by growing tired of her royal duties and sneaks out with her chipmunk best friend to travel to an Autumn Festival. Her friend is too funny and I loved the constant back and forth banter between the two.
The most hilarious of the animals were the wombat bandits - The Wombanditos; the fiercest gang with bad eyesight in all the realms! Heeyahhhh! The animals were a wonderful mix of the common, American and Aussie and represent the author's view as a US expat now living in Australia.
Such a fun, humorous read - I have added the next book to my TBR list.

I received a free ecopy of this novella from the author via Bookfunnel. I have voluntarily chosen to review the book and the gifting in no way influences my review/rating, which reflects my honest opinion.
