Have you ever wondered about the lives of animals? Do they experience their own delights, discouragements, and everyday obstacles like human beings? The Legend of Vinny Whiskers will amaze you from the onset. Take this adventurous tale into Boomerang Lookout’s mysterious disappearance to Vinny Whiskers betrayal of the prairie-dogs in the Tubes.

Not all is at it appears. Much to the dismay of the Grand Ludwig, Mr. Thin Fur’s voice of wisdom attempts to guide the newly named Boomerang Lookout, the runt of the litter. Afraid of change the Grand Ludwig holds tight to the past customs and beliefs. However, Boomerang Lookout’s curiosity sets the wheels in motion down the road to discovery. Will the Tubes be returned back to normal with the new found truths? The clock is ticking for all concerned and victory lies on Boomerang Lookout’s small shoulders. Will he triumph or fail as so many expect?

Gregory Kemp’s deliciously written tale will have you spellbound from page one. You will most certainly forget you are reading about the battle between prairie-dogs and rats. Did I say rats? Yes I did. But don’t let that discourage you. This tale will have you cheering for the underdog.
