I am now officially obsessed with stand-alone books. So, like, OFFICIALLY. Check out my entire to-be-read list of books by following my Goodreads.
When a country raccoon used to a soft life winds up all alone in the big city, there’s no telling what he’ll do to survive — and to save his fellow wild animals in the process.
Kit, a young raccoon, has lived his whole life under the Big Sky in the comfort of his parents’ burrow. But when a pack of hunting dogs destroy his home and kill his parents, Kit finds himself in Ankle Snap Alley, a city in the midst of a turf war between the Wild Ones and the people’s pets who call themselves The Flealess. There he follows the clues his parents left behind to uncover the secret that they died for–the existence of an ancient truce that gives Ankle Snap Alley to the Wild Ones. But The Flealess will stop at nothing to keep that secret buried forever–and Kit is in serious danger.
Perfect for fans of the Warriors, Spirit Animals, or Redwall series, this first book in the Wild Ones epic is sure capture young readers’ imaginations and take them on a great adventure.
Yeah. So, more of kids than anything, but still. IMAGINATIVE. WILDLY. 🙂
Please. I will now write in short, blocked sentences for the rest of my life because of the sheer awesomeness of this book.
As Katherine Applegate, author of The One and Only Ivan, says:
“Raccoon hero Kit and his ragtag community of creatures will sneak their way into you heart. they may pick your pocket too, but they’ll take you on an adventure you won’t forget. This is a fantasy that kids will adore (and quick-of-paw parents will steal). A wild ride from a wildly imaginative author.”
So now you now.
The book itself in mainly aimed towards younger audiences, but if you appreciate the writing, you will enjoy it immensely. It was different from what I usually read, but all the same, I give it:
