Kit is a young country raccoon forced to escape from his country home in "the Big Sky" when a pack of dogs kill his parents. He travels to Ankle Snap Alley in search of the "Bone of Contention" honoring his mother's last request. Entering this contentious alley where the Wild One's fight the People's Pets, Kit quickly learns he must think carefully using his clever raccoon tricks to survive. Reminiscent of the Redwall series the animal characters in this story convincingly come to life.

I am not usually a fan of books with animals as characters, but this book totally won me over. From the very beginning, London throws the animals into desperate, wild, sometimes violent situations, but beneath the action is wonderful characterization and world building! Aug 04, Alyssa rated it really liked it. That makes 7!!!
This book was adorable!!!!! Alexander London is an enjoyable middle grade adventure fantasy featuring an epic conflict between wild and domesticated animals. Kit, a young raccoon in the city for the first time must find the Bone of Contention and stop the turf war.
Librarians will find the blend of witty humor with the well-developed animal characters to be a draw for youth who enjoy anthropomorphic stories. Fans of Redwall, Warriors, Spirit Animals, or any of the other animal series books will enjoy the diverse cast of animals. Published by Philomel, an imprint of Penguin on August 25, A definite "next read" for fans of the Warriors series and a gateway to Redwall.
The Wild Ones (Wild Ones Series #1)
How Kit manages to manipulate things to his benefit, despite being a naive newcomer to this world, will engage readers as much as the different animals we meet the headlines blurted out by the finches are so funny and the evil of the Rabid Rascals is perfect. Will this be a series? I do hope so. ARC provided by publisher.
A fantastic addition to the 'animals as protagonists' genres of children's lit. Despite being set in 'our world', London successfully builds a unique mythology and world of two factions of warring sets of animals - the ones in the wild and the ones owned by people. Great characters and action packed, I'm already looking forward to the sequel. Not sure if it was just me, but I was getting a Stonewall allegory by the end of the novel and if this was intentional or not, it's something that stood ou A fantastic addition to the 'animals as protagonists' genres of children's lit.
Not sure if it was just me, but I was getting a Stonewall allegory by the end of the novel and if this was intentional or not, it's something that stood out for me. My son 8yrs and I just finished reading The Wild One and we both loved it. My son was drawn to the rich lives of the animal characters, I appreciated the original story and we both had the urge to read just one more page And we often did, staying up past bedtime on a few nights to do just that.
This story will appeal to boys and girls alike. Parents this is one of those books you will want to read right along with your children. Alex London remains as excellent and bloodthirsty as always in his middle-grade books. Expect a similar number of characters to be eaten as you normally see in the adult SF of John Scalzi, and you've got a good handle on what to expect, with the addition of religious scribe mice, a terrifying Rat King, and an art-appreciator alligator who wants people to come see her art and to eat them.
Hard to say whether this is theme, action, or character driven because all aspects are present in full force! Many pages dog eared because of memorable dialogue or characterization. Goofy and fast, with intentional echoes of so many good stories, from Redwall to Uncle Remus.
A few genuinely eerie moments lend depth to a classic new-kid-in-town turf battle. I may never think of popcorn in quite the same way again. Shelves: fairy-tales , must-own , lgbtqiap , childrens-books. Another great book by Alex London! To read my full review, click here. The main character is described as wearing clothes in the book, yet is not wearing clothes in the illustrations inside and is only wearing a hat on the cover page.

This one, tiny racoon will have to be the one to save them all. What was liked, and disliked. I liked the cleverness of kit. He always had another answer. I did not enjoy the roughness of the city folk, and the ways they lived by. It was very adventurous and it make you think and predict about what will happen next. Overall I would rank this book a 3 and a half.
