Not since Kate DiCamillo’s The Tale of Despereaux has a rodent hero been so likable and sympathetic. Author A. T. Balsara has created a convincing underworld with medieval overtones as the backdrop for this fascinating story of politics and prejudice among rats below ground and humans above. Surprises and gratifying resolutions make this adventure a satisfying read. In addition to plenty of enjoyment, there is also a valuable lesson at the core of The Great & The Small.

No offensive material. Recommended for young adult and adult readers, especially those who love a good fairy tale or medieval fantasy.  #TheGreatAndTheSmall #NetGalley
