Oh, that’s a great story. I read it long ago and listened to it a couple years ago. It’s a great story of animals basically doing the human thing in and around an abbey run by mice. It’s great fun so long as you don’t think too long and hard about which animals are sentient and which aren’t and how the vast differences in scale and lack of opposable thumbs could possibly work… but other than that, it’s great fun.
Formatwise, I’ve read a few graphic novel adaptations of novels and usually they feel a little lackluster (White Sands and Storm Front as two examples), but if anything was going to work, this was it. It’s already a lighter fantasy world with lots of light riddles and actions and over the top characters that fit just fine with graphic novels. And it pays off. As an introduction to this world, it’s a great alternative. It’s just so fun to see pictures of how someone else saw all of the characters from this world.
Well worth the read.
