Walter Wangerin's profound fantasy concerns a time when the sun turned around the earth and the animals could speak, when Chauntecleer the Rooster ruled over a more or less peaceful kingdom. What the animals did not know was that they were the Keepers of Wyrm, monster of evil long imprisoned beneath the earth....and Wyrm was breaking free. Download and start listening now!

    " I didn't really enjoy this story, although the imagery of the simple animals fighting on against the dark, overwhelming waters of evil and destruction was powerful and reminded me of LotR. I also liked how the Wyrm was described as being so angry that he was kept imprisoned by humble, ignorant animals. This reminded me of the wrath of the demons in Screwtape Letters when they realize that man, a thing born in a bed, could stand before angels and not cower away the way the demons had to. Even though I know I should be more partial to a book that's supposed to have Christian insights, I'd rather read Watership Down any day! "

    " This was great-- an epic on the scale of Chronicles of Narnia. Some of it could be scary for a younger reader. I won't give it to my 7 year old yet, but also won't hesitate to recommend it to my 12 year old. "

    " Better than The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. More succinct than Lord of the Rings, but just as imaginative. It's a book of faith, not about about faith, deeply rooted in the Christian story and in the communal Christian practice of daily liturgy. I imagine reading it to my children. I receive it as book about leadership. I think you'll like it. "

    " What seems to be a very docile book, just like the farm animals in it, has turned out to be incredibly deep, moving, and thought provoking. The chapters are short, making it a quick read, but the very real struggle between good and evil sticks with you throughout the day. I'd highly recommend this book, as I continue to mull over the ideas and reminders presented here. "
