Mouse Guard: Winter 1152 by David Petersen

Winter has set in and the Mouse Guard are on a mission: to retrieve medical supplies from nearby Sprucetuck, a village that is the home of mouse science and libraries (don't miss the extras at the end of the book with details on both Sprucetuck and Darkheather). Rand is inexplicably ill and near death. Gwendolyn sends the usual suspects, Saxon, Kenzie, Lieam, Sadie, and Celanawe to Sprucetuck. On the way, they are separated, encounter bats and owls, and, sadly, not all of them survive. Another volume of mouse adventure and fantasy not to be missed. David Petersen won the Eisner award for Best Graphic Novel - Reprint and Best Publication for Kids for his Mouse Guard series in 2008. Coming soon: Mouse Guard: The Black Axe! Grade 6 - Adult
