A fantastic and epic adventure story. Snowbone is the natural leader of a band of wooden children, who are tracking down a group of human slavers. Their journey takes them on a wonderful flying ship from island to island, into the heart of a volcano, into the dreadful slave quarry and on to the final battle. Along the way, they make staunch friends and are betrayed by unexpected people. They also discover their own talents, weaknesses and heart's desire. With its roots in myth and magic, this is a story full of action, poetry and dark twists of fate.

Review quote

"Rollicking storytelling: As rooted in the oral tradition as Brian Jacques' Redwall novels, the epic battle drama comes with cozy interludes, and it's all broken into short, exciting chapters ideal for sharing aloud.""--Booklist""Like Barkbelly's, [Snowbone's] story is expansive and episodic. . . . [Her] growth from a voracious baby to a thoughtful, inspiring leader is both satisfying and convincing.""--Kirkus Reviews"
