This book is a short and sweet story. It's about a dog who pals up with a wizard mouse to save a bunch of mice from an evil human mayor.
The story in itself has several good things going for it. It's length is just long enough, the writing is nice, and it isn't filled with death and violence (albeit there's elements of danger). It's the kind of book you'd like to read through in a weekend if you just want to have a fun story.
I DID think the story spent a little too much time with the secondary human main character Hank, but there was enough variety and the story intrigued me enough to keep going. Overall, good first novel and i'm looking forward to the sequel.
