Mistmantle Chronicles: Urchin of the Riding Stars

In the starting of the Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister "Urchin of the Riding Stars" tells the story of Urchin, a young squirrel named Urchin who was orphaned at birth on the island of Mistmantle. When a young prince is murdered and Urchin's hero is falsely accused of the crime; strange things start to happen and the once joyous island suddenly goes very dark. But when Urchin uncover the truth can he save his idol's name, and save more innocent animals be killed?
This book is a true joy to read and in my opinion is better then the big fantasy animal series such as Warriors, and Seekers [though I'm not saying those are bad]. McAllister really gets really creative, with humor when you want it and suspense when you don't. This book is perfect for any true reader but those people who are reluctant readers [also known as most of us boys]. Check back soon as I'll be posting the next one in the series titled "Urchin and the Heartstone".
