The Daring Adventures of Penhaligon Brush, by S. Jones Rogan (2007), is a fabulous book.
Penhaligon Brush is a fox. He was abandoned by his parents, who went to find a better world, when he was young, so he stayed with a family of badgers. His favorite was his badger brother, Bancroft (the badger shown on the cover).
Penhaligon journeys from Ramble-on-the-Water to the town of Porthleven to meet his brother, but when he gets there he finds that the whole city has been over-run by a ferret army. It is up to him to defeat the spoiled nephew of Lady Furball Feline, to get back Furball Manor, who is leading the ferrets...
This book is both entertaining, has a lot of detail, and something I can't put my finger on, without opening the book....I loved it!
