Influenced more by Seven Samurai, Zulu and Joss Whedon than by Watership Down, Warren Peace is about a young, nervous rabbit with an easy life…. until the foxes come. With his friends and family’s lives in danger, Cuetip must undertake a perilous journey out into the big world to find help. On the way, he also finds terror, sadness, friendship, cats, hilarity and perhaps most important of all, courage.
A novel about talking animals, but definitely not for smaller children.
I read Fog (a thriller) by Michael Wombat, loved his writing style, and wanted to read another of his books. I chose Warren Peace as it offered something different… talking rabbits.
I was not disappointed!
The humour and sense of adventure was there from the start, and I was soon trotting alongside Cuetip as he set off into the world to find help to protect his warren and his friends from the gang of foxes who were threatening them!
A well-witten visual book with dimensional characters… albeit rabbits and cats, that’s definitely worth adding to your to-read list.
Meet The Author:
A Yorkshireman living in the rural green hills of Lancashire, Michael Wombat is a man of huge beard. He has a penchant for good single-malts, inept football teams, big daft dogs and the diary of Mr. Samuel Pepys. Abducted by pirates at the age of twelve he quickly rose to captain the feared privateer ‘The Mrs. Nesbitt’ and terrorised the Skull Coast throughout his early twenties. Narrowly escaping the Revenue men by dressing as a burlesque dancer, he went on to work successively and successfully as a burlesque dancer, a forester, a busker, and a magic carpet salesman.
The fact that he was once one of that forgotten company, the bus conductors, will immediately tell you that he is as old as the hills in which he lives. Nowadays he spends his time writing and pretending to take good photographs. You can have a good laugh at his pathetic blog or his photographs, but most of all please go and mock him mercilessly on Twitter or Facebook. Michael Wombat has published over one book. Other authors are available.
