Sasha has fallen in love with Tigerstar, but she has learned a secret. Tigerstar has asked her to join Shadowclan. What will she do?


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Pre-teens and teens will love the fast-moving story. Reluctant and remedial readers will be excited that they can talk about the series, especially if reading he novels is overwhelming.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Parent Reaction

The pictures help the story move along quickly. This is an attractive choice for parents who want a little more text in their child’s graphic novels. I also liked that the graphics were black and white, with simple backgrounds. They didn’t overtake the story itself. This is my first introduction to the Warriors series, and I found the story intriguing enough – even in this format – to want to pick up the novels.

Type of Book:
This is the first title in this graphic novel series based on Erin Hunter's Warriors novels.
Educational Themes:

Like most graphic novels, this is meant for recreational reading. That said, the story offers themes of friendship, loyalty, trust, and respect.

Reading Level:
2.4
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
10 and Up
Recommended Age To Read Together:
8 to 12
Age of child:
Review pending.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. Although the story is fun to read, once you know the “history,” you’re more likely to want to go on to the next adventure.
