Again, cute fluff. New adventure, again heavily dependent on luck and confidence. No generational prophesy on this one - it's more about the power of networking. Be friendly to everyone you can; if they can't help you, they can lead you to someone who can lead you to someone (...repeat as needed...) who can help you. It's slightly more believable than the first book, though only slightly - separated parties rejoin way too easily. Some very quick healing happens. And - the mouse is definitely mouse-colored (gray-brown), why does she call him Snowball? Odd. Fun to read once, and if someone just the right age read it it might become a treasured favorite. Not for me, though. Oh - I have the ARC; lots of "art to come", with sketches filling in most of the spots (some are just blank). But even those sketches are nicely done, conveying the movement and action of the scene depicted. ( )

This is the second book in the Anton and Cecil historical fiction series. Anton and Cecil are safe at home when they get a message through the mouse network that Hieronymus Mouse has been captured. They head off to rescue him, even though Anton does not really want to go. The adventure takes them on across the sea and onto a “landship”. They travel across the continent by train, see a boat with a wheel and along the way they meet prairie dogs, cougars, buffalo and more. Cecil gets into all kinds of trouble, the pair get separated a couple of times but all in all they accomplish what they set out to do, rescue Hieronymus. What an enjoyable adventure for a pair of adventurous cats. For readers who love animal adventurers this is a fun series.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
