#3: The Meerkat Wars - H.S Toshack


It's all very well helping a young meerkat who's been poisoned by a scorpion. But when you've made friends with the whole Duwara tribe of meerkats, and you discover that they're at war with the Utongo, you may find yourself involved in that too, even if you're only a little black-and-white cat. And when you realise that the two tribes are fighting because each one believes it lives under The One True Sun, then you may have to undertake a very dangerous journey to help them see things differently. You may have to go through The Gorge.

AUTHOR BIO:
H. S. Toshack has lived and worked as an English teacher and educational consultant in the UK, the Caribbean, Africa, Thailand and the Middle East. He now lives and writes in Portugal...and travels, still.
His Paka Mdogo stories are set in Africa, but they are colored by his experience of people, and lives lived, in all of those other places; and he intends to take his cat heroine Sheena, in future books, to some of them (perhaps Thailand next).
'Or rather,' he says, 'I'll let her take me. She led me through the first three books, after all. It was as if she was telling her stories through me. That's why I've put her portrait alongside my photo. She's my co-author.'


My Opinion:
Initially when I saw this book, I had no idea it was the third in a series. While reading it and afterwards, I say it can easily be read as a stand alone. Though I do look forward to reading the others.
This was a lot of fun and had a ton of adventure. Those of you who read the Zan-Gah series will enjoy this one. It's not the same setting, but the feel for adventure is close.
Pubescent teens would really get a kick out of these stories too.
I look forward to my next reading adventure with Sheena!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
