Age 9+. This is an excellent part graphic novel, part heroic fantasy with a healthy and topical dose too of what could happen to us on Earth if we don’t ALL take global warming more seriously. The reader will warm hugely to Thelonious the Chipmunk as he experiences all manner of adventures in order to discover whether humans ever existed. It’s an adventure, like no other, a real page turner and given its part graphic novel content, the slowest of readers will find themselves turning the pages really quickly.


Travels of Thelonious by Susan Schade, Jon Buller

In ancient times human beings ruled the Earth at least that's what the old legends claim. But is it true? Thelonious Chipmunk is a Talker- an animal who has inherited the gift of language and he, for one, believes in humans. Who else could have made the old paper postcard he treasures? His desire to know more about humans is fulfilled in a surprising and dangerous way when Thelonious is swept down the river into a strange new world - a world where gangs and warlords prowl amongst the crumbling remains of civilization. With three new companions, a bear, a porcupine, and a lizard, Thelonious embarks on a search for the far-off Fog Mound. It is a journey that becomes nothing less than a quest to uncover the secrets of Earth's past.
