Australian Bookseller & Publisher, 5 stars "...a real treat ... laced with plenty of adventure, wisdom and humour...This is a terrific read" Kirkus Reviews "These latest mouse heroes promise more ripping, gripping mystery and adventure." Publishers Weekly "...a winning adventure..." School Library Journal"Narrow escapes and plot twists abound, with almost every chapter ending in a nail-biting cliff-hanger. The suspenseful tone and accessible, polished writing will doubtless keep readers turning the pages. The conclusion is thoroughly satisfying, yet it is clear that many more obstacles face these mice before their story truly comes to an end. Fans of Brian Jacques's "Redwall" series (Philomel) as well as action and adventure aficionados will devour this book and eagerly await the next installment in the series."
