    This book is precisely the reason I love middle grade literature

    This book is precisely the reason I love middle grade literature. It's like reading Animal Farm for kids. It is like everything and nothing I've read before. I loved it. Barry Wolverton built a beautiful, complex society of animals with history and heart.

    On the surface it seems like a simple story about a sadistic owl and the brave puffin that defies him, but there is so much more to it. It is a story of hardship, oppression, freedom, and courage. It is about standing up for what you know is right and sacrificing yourself for the good of society. It is about leadership and friendship, fear and loyalty. It makes the reader look inward and ask how much they would be willing to sacrifice to preserve their freedom and independence. Would you be willing to die for the right to live without oppression, or would you stand passively aside while your freedoms are stripped away?

    The imagery is stunning. The author did a fantastic job at world building. I fell in love with the island of Neversink and the animals that call it home. Highly recommended for kids ages 8 and up.

    Content: Light danger/suspense. Some animals die, but there are no gory details. I consider it clean.
