This is a really great start to the next series. Discover what the "New Prophecy" is and what Star Clan has in store for its warriors. The two-leggers are up to something, as well. All our friends are back but it's the next generation of cats that have the mission. I love it!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Darkness, air, water, and sky will come together...

The wild cats of the forest have lived in peace and harmony for many moons — but a doom that will change everything is coming. Strange messages from their warrior ancestors speak of terrifying new prophecies, danger, and a mysterious destiny.

All the signs point to young warrior Brambleclaw as the cat with the fate of the forest in his paws. But why would the son of wicked cat Tigerstar be chosen to be a hero? And who are the other cats mentioned in the prophecy? All Brambleclaw knows for sure is that the strength and courage of the greatest warriors will be needed now, as the quest to save the Clans begins.

...and shake the forest to its roots.

Synopsis:

This exciting new trilogy set in the riveting world of Warriors follows the next generation of heroic cats as they set off on a quest to save all the Clans from destruction.

Itand#8217;s frogs versus scorpions in this new series by professional football player Trevor Pryce. For years, the frogs of the Amphibilands have lived in safetyand#151;protected by an elite group of poisonous frogs named the Kulipari and by the dreamcasting spell of the turtle king that cloaks their lands in mystery. Now the spell is threatened by the Spider Queen, a talented spellcaster, and Lord Marmoo, leader of the scorpions. With the Kulipari off training in secret, the Amphibilands have never been so vulnerable. Enter Darel, a young frog who dreams of joining the Kulipari, despite his utter lack of poison and limited fighting skills. With the help of a motley crew of friends, Darel has the chance to become the warrior of his dreams.

Cool animals, thrilling action, and a bit of natural scienceand#151;this novel, illustrated in full color by acclaimed comics artist Sanford Greene, is sure to be a major hit with boys.

Praise for An Army of Frogs

"This little frog should find fans among readers of the Warriors and Redwall sagas."

and#151;Kirkus Reviews

"Pryce builds tension as the frogs figure out how to deploy their varied skills and reach the ancient turtle king who long ago placed a protective spell over their land. The violent but not overly graphic action is well matched by Greeneand#8217;s dynamic and plentiful full-color illustrations."

and#151;Booklist

"In this fast-paced tale, Pryce finds just the right balance between brutality and bravery, friendship and betrayal, and loss and discovery. A must-have, winning adventure that is nearly impossible to put down."

and#151;School Library Journal

"Greeneand#8217;s color full-page illustrations have the richly saturated look of Marvel comic books, and thereand#8217;s a superhero feel to the various fighting poses Darel and his pals take."

and#151;The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This clever fantasy series featuring frogs versus scorpions, set in Australia, makes for pleasant reading."
