In the Winter of 1152, the Mouse Guard face a food and supply shortage threatening the lives of many mouse through a cold and icy season. Some of the Guard’s finest — Saxon, Kenzie, Lieam, and Sadie, led by Celanawe, the legendary Black Axe — traverse the snow-blanketed Territories acting as diplomats to improve relations between the mouse cities and the Guard, and seeking vital supplies in their headquarters at Lockhaven. But hungry predators, the dangers of ice and snow, and a wrong turn into the haunted depths of the abandoned weasel tunnels of Darkheather place even so intrepid a band of Guardsmice in mortal peril. This is a winter not every Guard may survive…

 “Combining a tale of action, romance, comedy, and tragedy with the graphic-novel format results in a top-notch work with wide appeal.” -School Library Journal

“David Petersen’s tiny actors play out their story of courage and loyalty on an epic stage. With impeccable taste Petersen chooses dramatic camera angles and striking copositions, not merely to tell the story, but to expand the world. The colors transition from golden firelight to pale blue moonlight. There are snippets of olde ballads, epic poems, and timeworn maps. The effect of this artistry is to extend the story world beyond the frame of the comic panels so that it lives inside our minds…” -James Gurney, from his Foreword
