MOUSE GUARD vol.1: FALL 1152

THE FIRST VOLUME OF THE AWARD-WINNING SERIES BRINGS THE WORLD OF MICE TO LIFE.

“Petersen’s character designs are enormously appealing, and the book is hard to put down for that reason. The story is suitable for all ages, and kids in  particular should enjoy this adventure.”
—Publishers Weekly

In the world of Mouse Guard, mice struggle to live safely and prosper amongst harsh conditions and a host of predators. Thus the Mouse Guard was formed: more than just soldiers, they are guides for common mice looking to journey without confrontation from one hidden village to another. Saxon, Kenzie and Lieam, are three such Guardsmice. As our heroes journey through the Fall and Winter seasons, they will face merciless foes, traitors within their ranks and the perilous weather of the winter months. Along the way, the Guardmice discover and ally themselves with Celanawe, the legendary Black Axe—who aids them as they carry out their solemn duty as members of the Guardmice.

It is the Winter of 1152. It is a harsh winter, a cold and icy season. And the Guard face a food and supply shortage that threatens the lives of many throughout the land.
