Publisher's Summary

Before One for Sorrow, Two for Joy could even land on bookshelves, it was optioned by the Walt Disney Co. for a major motion picture. A sweeping epic of good versus evil, this rousing fable has been compared to Watership Down and The Lord of the Rings.

In the land of Birddom, a terrible danger is spreading. Magpies and crows, led by the vicious Slyekin and his assassin Traska, have taken control by hunting down and exterminating one gentle species after another. But in the face of slaughter, a brave robin named Kirrick leads the charge against Slyekin. Flying to every corner of Birddom, Kirrick rallies eagles, owls, and an assortment of other creatures to resist the menace.

Full of glorious escapades and thrilling from first word to last, One for Sorrow, Two for Joy is an immediate fantasy classic.

    "not a kids' book"

    One for Sorrow, Two for Joy is an OK listen for an adult. Don't let the animal characters fool you, though -- it's NOT for the kids. Too much blood, senseless cruelty, violence, and the like. If it is indeed optioned by Disney for a movie, it's going to require a lot of sanitizing.

    "Disappointed"

    I was enticed by the comparison to Watership Down, but was quickly let down. This story was just very flat and one-dimentional, in my opinion. The characters lacked any kind of depth, and the plot was simplistic and predictable. The narration was quite nice, though.
