    1. Like all prequels, this does not match up perfectly with established facts and events, despite its best efforts to do so. The story is very bleak and pretty pointless. The otters' "cure" for the sickness makes sense for them, but I've never been able to see any good reason why it should work on other animals.

    2. Pointless and mostly boring. I wouldn't like how bleak it was if I cared about any of the characters, but I don't. There's some wasted potential in the meeting and in Sleek Otter's journey through the story, both of which fail miserably. Nervous Squirrel is incredibly annoying, and as for Sage Hedgehog - well, the first Farthing Wood book felt very much like a mediocre copy of another man's genius, and here Dann is at it again with a mediocre copy of Fiver.

    3. This is a prequel to The Animals of Farthing Wood, so chronologically it comes first, even though it was the last book to be written. It's a decent book, but I don't recommend starting the series here.That's partly because the author got a bit more sophisticated over time, so it may feel odd to take a step "backwards" when you move on to the first (written) book in the series. For instance, each character in that is simply named after their species, e.g. "Fox" and "Badger". By contrast, the anim [...]

    4. While the general tone of the Farthing Wood series is still present here - gripping storyline and adventures had by the animal main characters - there's something lacking in this prequel. It's not just unfamiliarity with the new main characters, but that the otters come off as an unfeeling group worthy of little sympathy, throwing the book out as the reader questions who to support. There is also a rather gruesome feel to the story. While none of the subsequent novels gloss over the harsher real [...]
