Mouse Guard: Fall 1152

by David  Petersen

Published by Archaia Studios Press, 2007
192 pages
ISBN: 9781932386578

Ages 9-14

A beautifully produced, full-color graphic novel tells a satisfying story of intrigue and adventure set in a medieval kingdom of mice. Lieam, Saxom, and Kenzie are members of the Mouse Guard. Originally soldiers that defended the kingdom against a weasel warlord, the Guard members now act as escorts and guides in the time of peace, maintaining the balance so that citizens can thrive. But the disappearance of a grain merchant begins a chain of events that leads the trio into the heart of a plot to overthrow the Guard as an unknown enemy of the kingdom makes a grasp for power. Most of the story is told through dialogue between the characters in Petersenís intricate, elegant artwork, which is the centerpiece of the storytelling as he brings his medieval fantasy world vividly alive.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
