Patch and the Birds

It was not entirely true that Patch knew there was food in the mountains. He had never been to the mountains. No squirrel in all the Center Kingdom, as far as he knew, had ever been to the mountains. For between the kingdom and the mountains, surrounding it on all sides like a moat around a castle, there lay a blasted concrete wasteland, as wide as fifty squirrels laid nose to tail, and horrific death machines roared up and down this wasteland at terrifying speeds, all day and night.

I enjoyed this book very much. Thank you Mr Evans.


I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to others.


Jon Evans is a fool to give this away for free. This story is every bit as entertaining as any Harry Potter adventure or modern fiction thriller. Download it. Read it. Print it. Give it to everyone you know.


i thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a bit slow starting, but by the time patch was kidnapped i was hooked. Highly entertaining read for me. I love discovering a book like this, something totally unexpected and chosen at random. Its the great thing of manybooks... discovery.


An interesting story from an unusual perspective. Although too dark and at times bloody for children it makes for an interesting story for adults. It has obvious similarities to "Watership Down", and "Book of the Dun Cow", though it's probably not quite as well written. Still, an enjoyable fantasy.
