Deep in the heart of Aladrya stands a mighty mountain. Rising high above the clouds, its rocky crags and windswept cliffs are home to four species of birds. With only three days left until the full moon feast, Whisker’s rescue mission to find his sister hangs in the balance. Even if he can reach the mountain alive, he still has to outwit and out-fly the dreaded birds of prey.
"In this fifth book of the charming Pie Rats adventure series, the heroic rat Whisker, aided by his friends Ruby Rat, Hook Hand Horace, and Chatterbeak the parrot, set out across the snowy terrain to save Whisker’s little sister from ravenous birds of prey. The group encounters harrowing and humorous situations (including a budding romance, hidden messages, and an avalanche) that should delight young readers, whether they’ve been following the series since the first book or have just jumped onboard the pie rats’ ship for an exciting initial voyage."
