Puff, the small squirrel, was late again. He was supposed to meet Sir Pattercloud when the sun went down but he got distracted on the way by some delicious acorns. Sir Pattercloud was not too happy because Puff was his squire. The next day was the Tournament of Oaks when the champions of the three squirrel clans would fight. The contest was to decide which clan of squirrels would rule the park for the next set of seasons. Who wins the Tournament of Oaks?

The Squirrel Squire and the Tournament of Oaks: A Fantastic Tails Adventure Book 1 by Erik DeLeo is a whimsical story in which the animal clans fight with each other to win a tournament. The talking animals and sword fights make the story adventurous and enchanting to young readers and take them on a fantastical adventure. The idea of having squirrel clans and having them fight to decide on who is going to be the ruler is quite innovative and interesting. The characterization of Puff is strong and memorable, though he is a small squirrel, and the rest of the characters in the story are equally interesting. For all youngsters who love action, adventure, fantasy, and magic, this book will definitely be a treat. The Blackscourge of Clan Gray sets the tone for Book 2 and I cannot wait to read it. What about you?
