Synopsis

Shrew Wars by Peter D. Rush

This illustrated children's book tells the story of the Shrew Wars, a bitter struggle between two communities of shrews - the Rosbifs and the Francias. When Romano, a young shrew from Francia, is captured during a daring raid into the Rosbifs' territory, the people of Trouville must perform an equally daring rescue to bring him home and end the fighting that has plagued their towns for years. This book is brought to life by over 40 illustrations by the author which draw children into the exciting world of the Shrew Wars. Inspired by the Napoleonic Wars, this exciting story is perfect for children aged between 7 and 9 and will teach them about diversity, acceptance and forgiveness.
