Overview

Editorial Reviews

The linchpin volume of the Warrior manga trilogy follows Graystripe and Millie's eventful search for ThunderClan. For this likable pair, danger seems to be everywhere: Even getting out of Twolegplace challenges their fledgling skills, and just when things seem a bit easier, a pack of barn cats threatens to wreak havoc on their mission!

I was caught up in this story immediately and had no trouble understanding the storyline, even though it had been continued from the first book. Two cats named, Graystripe and Millie set off to find ThunderClan, the home of Graystripe. At the start of the journey, everything seems fine, until they meet up with monsters made by two-legs (humans). The cars and trucks go fast, smell bad, and are very noisy. When they get past that, they encounter a frightening monster that cuts down plants in the large fields. Millie gets frightened and runs away. Graystripe cannot find her, and he gets help from two barn cats who act mean and say they do not want to help. As the story continues, the cats find a way to live together, help each other, and even change the way the family of two-legs feel toward them. After a while, Graystripe feels uncomfortable and realizes he is not at home in the barn and needs to continue on the journey to ThunderClan. Both he and Millie leave and eventually find the camp they are seeking. They see that the place Graystripe called home is no longer standing. This book is continued, and it is a sure bet the readers will want to get their hands on the next installment. Not only was it interesting, but it also showed how negative feelings between people and animals can change with understanding. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs

Gr 5 Up -Erin Huntera's "Warriors" series (HarperCollins) gets a manga-style treatment in this addition to the series. What makes it different from other prose-to-comics adaptations is that it isna't a straight translation but rather an entirely new story line that expands on the prose novels rather than merely supplementing them. Tough and wise Graystripe has befriended the now-liberated Millie and the two are searching for Graystripea's old allies, the ThunderClan. After braving a highway and escaping some monstrous farm machinery, the felines take refuge in a barn, only to find other cats already living there. The current residents are wary of them, as the situation is tense. The owners have no love for cats and their dogs make the barn dwellers virtual prisoners. Predictably, Graystripe and Millie win over both the humans and cats, but the resolution is actually the booka's high point: through Milliea's bravery, readers discover that the dogs arena't cruel-they just like to chase cats. The artwork is merely competent and the story (which was not written by Hunter) is slight, but fans of the novels and cat stories in general will be drawn to it. While the majority of the lettering is done in the standard comics all-caps style, whenever humans are speaking the font becomes scratchy and aggressive. While this appears to be a deliberate choice to accentuate the humansa' villain role, it is retained even after they befriend the cats, and is especially odd when a toddler is speaking.-Douglas P.

Whoa, I had no idea that the manga was that detailed. Anyways, the books are great. They are pretty short, so I need to wait for the next one that will come out in several months. But the dialouge and the illustrations make up for it (I am a die hard manga fan). I wish that they wrote a book too about Graystripe's journey. Overall, the book is a good book.

I really enjoy these manga books! In the book, Graystripe and Millie get lost in a corn field and then take refuge in a nearby barn. I think these books are an excellent idea! Great job Erin Hunter!

I simply *love* the series, and now I love the manga! The only thing I didn't like was that they messed up on the format (Manga reads from right to left, people! Come on!). Everything else, though, was great! Graystripe is so handsome! Oh, but I wouldn't break my loyalty to Swiftclaw ('made-up'), even if you offered to make me Deputy. We have four beautiful kits- Jaypaw, Leokit, Moonpelt (our Medicine Cat), and Hazelkit. And no, Jaypaw and Hazelkit are not the same cats as the ones in the books, even if we *are* all in ThunderClan.
