Publisher's Summary

Every mouse knows of the dangers in the sewers, where bloodthirsty gangs of rats roam. But one curious mouse can't resist that perilous world and thus must face evil at its strongest - or the entire city of London could be destroyed.

Critic Reviews

"A spooky and enthralling animal fantasy...Jarvis provides counterpoint to the heart-racing adventure with scenes of haunting beauty...[and] conveys a sense of place powerful enough to elevate the South London boroughs of Greenwich and Blackheath to requisite stops on any bookish child's literary tour of the British capital." ( Publishers Weekly)

Dark version of "Fievel" books, I loved it!

This is one of the best critter books I've read, if you love "Redwall" or other books like that, you're in for a great story.
