If you like books with talking animals, humor, and fantasy you will love this novel. This book is about a raccoon family that lives in the forest under the Big Sky. One day they get ambushed by bloodhounds owned by humans. The son, Kit sadly lost his mother and father in the ambush, but luckily Kit escaped and arrived at Ankle Snap Alley. Ankle Snap was a place where crooks and burglars live. But these burglars aren’t humans, they are animal crooks. There are bad rats and scoundrels of mice. Kit got pulled into the shell and nut game. He had seeds in his pocket that his mother gave him, and also the footprint of Azkaban. He lost his seeds in one game, but he bet more money; well by “money” I mean seeds. He lost and he was about to get out his seeds when he saw a albino rat took them! He chased the rat and got his seeds back, but then Kit and the rat crook became friends! This is only the beginning of a crazy adventure. Kit had to fight an alligator, meet a rat king, and fight in the biggest, baddest, and bloodiest battle that any animal has ever fought in.
