For fans of the film series Shrek and the Chronicles of Narnia and of Frozen, as well as classic books such as Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Cricket in Times Square, and The Mouse and the Motorcycle, this imaginative and engaging debut middle-grade novel by author/illustrator/animator Henrik Tamm includes plucky animal characters, action-packed adventure, and lush full-color illustrations throughout.
Timmy the cat, his pal Simon the mink, and the pig brothers Jasper and Casper are inventors, and they’re hoping to sell their fabulous new contraption to a local merchant. With high hopes, they haul their machine through the crowded streets of Elyzandrium—and are promptly robbed by a gang of bullies. With the help of two new friends, Alfred, a kindly old toymaker, and Flores, a skilled cat pilot, Timmy and his pals set out to get back what is rightfully theirs.

I couldn’t make it too easy for you.” She smiled mischievously. They looked into each other’s eyes and stood nose to nose. Behind them, they noticed everyone watching in anticipation.

Timmy and Flores found an attic across the street from the toymaker’s shop, where they moved in together. Dobie and the Gribble cousins already lived just a few blocks over, so they stayed where they were. Alfred put the Blue Rabbit into a large box, which he
