The River Singers (Paperback)Tom Moorhouse (author)
Perfect reading for fans of Watership Down and Redwall, Moorhouse's stirring tale of anthropomorphic adventure sets a quartet of water voles off on a dangerous journey to escape a terrifying predator.
Something was approaching the burrow. Something deadly. Something that made Sylvan's fur bristle with fear . . . Knowing their lives are under threat, Sylvan and his brother and sisters have no choice but to abandon their burrow for ever.
Together they set out on an epic journey along the Great River; but with dangers lurking at every turn, will they ever find a safe place to call home? Now available in paperback, this exciting and beautifully-illustrated animal adventure has the makings of a future children's classic.
