Publisher's Summary

For fans of Warriors, Spirit Animals, and Redwall - the next great animal fantasy adventure is here! 

Kit is a young raccoon who has lived his whole life under the Big Sky. But when a pack of hunting dogs destroy his home and kill his parents, Kit needs to escape. 

He 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 uncovers the secret that they died for - 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. Only the brave of heart and quick of paw can save the Wild Ones now. 

This first book in the Wild Ones epic is sure capture young listeners' imaginations and take them on a great adventure. 

"The action is fast-paced, the dialogue hilarious, and the supporting characters true to their animal personalities. Animal fantasy lovers will frequently chuckle; younger children may enjoy hearing the book read aloud." (School Library Connection

"Bold deeds, betrayals, and buffoonery kick off this series with gusto." (Kirkus Reviews)

Critic Reviews

"The sharp, lively descriptions ('like dynamite in a silk purse') shine while the exhilarating finale illustrates that home is wherever your 'howl to snap' friends live." (Publishers Weekly)

"Raccoon hero Kit and his ragtag community of creatures will sneak their way into your imagination and steal your heart. They may pick your pocket, too, but they'll take you on an adventure you won't soon forget. This is a fantasy that kids will adore (and quick-of-paw parents will steal). A wild ride from a wildly imaginative author." (Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan and the best-selling Animorphs series)

Featured Article: 10 LGBTQ+ Authors You Should Hear


LGBTQ+ authors are coming out as leading voices in the literary world. From strong lesbian heroines to tender gay romances to coming-of-age tales of trans kids, their listens are strikingly diverse—as you’ll discover from this sampling. Coming up with a comprehensive list of gay authors, let alone all authors who don’t identify as cisgender and heterosexual, is an impossible task. While society still has a long way to go in terms of embracing the community, there are more contemporary LGBTQ+ authors, across all genres and age groups, than ever before, and they are recognized for their work.
