Book Summary

In this whimsical political allegory, beautifully illustrated by Brian Floca, a group of mice fights to regain its liberty from the tyrannical owl Mr. Ocax. He rules the mice with an iron claw, granting them protection from a fearsome porcupine — but only in exchange for their undying obedience.
