About the Book

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.

Critical Praise

"A heart-pounding, paw-thumping adventure featuring a tiny hero with a giant heart."  
- Jan Eldredge, author of Evangeline of the Bayou

"Such a fabulous combination of heartwarming and twisty-turny! There are plenty of daring escapes and close calls to keep readers on the edges of their seats."  - Kate Albus, author of A Place to Hang the Moon

  "The cliffhanger chapters had us gasping for "one more!" And the laugh-out-loud moments provided much-needed comic relief to break up the rollercoaster ride."  - Ben Gartner, author of The Eye of Ra and Sol Invictus

"Although there is peril aplenty for the young mice, the gentle spirit of Heisel’s writing will keep young readers in suspenseful wonder."   - Alysa Wishengrad, author of The Verdigris Pawn
