Thimblerig's Ark

How many of you remember The Lion King?

Well, imagine that crossed with the story of the great flood and you have Thimblerig's Ark.

Thimblerig is a lowly groundhog. His entire existence is one con after the next. He is constantly skating through life by the skin of his teeth and narrowly escapes trouble only by his wits and quick thinking on his feet. Until one day he has a bad dream about a great flood and decides to turn it into his greatest scam yet.

Soon, all the animals of the forest are entrusting Thimblerig with their life savings of figs, so that he will lead them to safety from the upcoming disaster. Little does our unlikely hero know, but his nightmare of the flood was actually a premonition of things to come sent to him by the fabled Unicorn King.

Will Thimblerig be able to lead the animals of the forest to safety? Or will the pack of wild dogs lead by the ruthless Blonger catch and execute everyone during the annual Great Hunt?

Thimblerig's Ark is a really fun book with lots of action and lovable characters. I found myself picturing many of the animals as those animated in The Lion King-especially the wild dogs that I envisioned to be the hyenas. I found the religion of the animals of the forest to be very intriguing and certainly did ring a bell with regards to parallels between other bible stories.

The climatic scene is especially well written and I found the pages flying by as I held my ebook reader with white knuckles, eagerly anticipating the exciting conclusion. Thimblerig's Ark is a breath of fresh air for those that may need a break from more serious reads. So, have yourself one heck of a great time and pick up a copy today!

Very much a breath of fresh air, but for me there appears to be echoes of Animal Farm here as well as Lion King. I wonder if the book has that political element too. Be interested to find out more through the website.

Thanks, 4-LAN,  another item for the 'tbr' list - although it does not appear to be in I-book format yet.   I like the cover art, too.

Danny! So good to hear from you again :-) I read Lord Prestimion in the Majipoor cycle-but I have not read any of the others. My favorite by Robert Silverberg is Kingdoms of the Wall.

Nate-glad you liked the review. It was a pleasure to read your book :-)

Eric-again, thank you for posting my link in your blog :-) Your magazine Under The Bed looks very creepy and disturbing-and I mean that as a compliment :-)

Thanks so much for the review, 4lan! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the book.  It inspires me to start working on part 2!

Hi 4lan, 

I like the sound of this one. I may give it a read. I am currently working through the Lord Prestimion series...going to be a while...anyway...hopefully, I am back active on here again.
