This gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic novel omnibus relates the epic tale of a band of heroic mice on a quest to save their kingdom. Though its beautiful artwork and engaging animal heroes recall the work of Beatrix Potter, its storytelling has the dark grandeur of "The Lord of the Rings."

This is the first complete hardcover of Mouse Guard, focusing on the first season we meet these courageous mice. The story is well crafted and would be accessible even to people who do not usually read graphic novels. The artwork is beautiful, and I even have a piece on my walls at home by the artist. It's a compelling piece with beautiful artwork. There is really nothing negative I can say about this book. Well worth a read.
