Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Raised on Mistmantle Isle, the foundling squirrel Urchin is thrilled to become the page for the heroic Captain Crispin, in this first book of M.I. McAllister's fantasy series for readers 9 to 13. But court intrigue threatens the peace of the island, and the heir to the throne is found murdered. Crispin is blamed and exiled, while the grieving king and queen are further manipulated by the ambitious Captain Husk and Lady Aspen--a pair not unlike Lord and Lady Macbeth. Can Urchin and Captain Padra, whom he now serves, undo their evil and bring Crispin back? The Mistmantle Chronicles tell the saga of young Urchin, an orphaned, strangely colored squirrel seemingly dropped from the sky, who may be the key to an ancient prophecy on the magically enshrouded isle of Mistmantle.
