Loved this fun mix of history, folklore and humour about a band of furry friends helping Amos (a civil war era woodsman mysteriously stranded in the 21st century) to return to his own time and save the royalist cause. Cat and dog lovers will surely recognise their own pets in at least one character and all readers will be rooting for them. I would love to know what the human 'owners' were up to while their pets were off on their adventures - maybe another story?

I so loved this book. So much history is included yet it doesn’t feel like school! I, as an adult have learnt a lot. You move through the book like a treasure trail, picking up pieces of information on the way. The joy is also feeling connected to the characters of the story, even the bad ones! More Stephanie Varah, more! Five stars from me!

Intriguing story

An intriguing story set both in the present time and in the Civil War, also picking up some of the history and geography of the local area. I particularly enjoyed the animal characterization and the interaction between them.

A delightful book, well written, interesting historical and folklore information, very vivid descriptions of the countryside – one can visualise the places – the characters are very well drawn (one can’t help but fall in love with Bungy!). Fantasy is not a genre I usually like but I really enjoyed this and so I have given it 5 stars. In my opinion it would make a brilliant animated film.

I read all the time, although not usually this kind of tale. I found it an absolute pleasure to read and became very involved in this magical story. I loved all the animal characters, and couldn’t wait to find out what happened to them. I think anyone of any age would really enjoy this book, and I would recommend it to anyone (or buy it for them as a gift!).

…I must say I really enjoyed this book, it was easy to read but not childish at all. I became involved in the animals adventures and loved the descriptive writing. It was lovely that I could relate to their stomping ground, but I am sure it would be just as enjoyable for those who don’t know the area where it is set. I found the twists in the tale to include historic facts and imagination were just right, making it a great way to learn about how the civil war affected ordinary folk. It would be an excellent book to read aloud to younger children too
