About the Book

"When young mouse Tobin has his baby brother snatched from his burrow by monstrous spiders, Tobin and his friends must embark on a dangerous journey deep into their forest home to save him, encountering new friends along the way"--

Book Synopsis


With the adventure of Avi's Poppy series and the heart of A Wolf Called Wander, this charming and exciting middle grade adventure follows one mouse's journey to save his baby brother from a sinister evil.

There are rules every mouse must follow if they're to survive in the forest.

Tobin knows these guidelines by heart. After all, with one younger sibling, another on the way, and a best friend with a penchant for trouble-making, he needs to be prepared for anything.

But one stormy night, Tobin's safe burrow is invaded by monstrous arachnids, and his baby brother stolen away. To save him, Tobin will have to do something he's never done before: break the rules.

Drawing inspiration from the author's work as a natural science documentarian, Journey Beyond the Burrow is as alive as the forest floor, where nature is unpredictable, occasionally frightening, and inspirational all the same.

Includes a black-and-white illustrated front piece.
