(From the publisher):
Gildaen has led a rabbit's sheltered life, but he longs to travel and explore the world beyond his home in the lower wood. While musing on his secret ambition in the garden of an old abandoned castle, Gildaen is befriended by a mysterious being who has lost his memory but not the ability to change shape at will. These two—together with Hickory, an exiled woodsman, and Fara Flann, a gentle young girl—accept the perilous task of thwarting the evil sorcerer Grimald, who is plotting to take over the kingdom. They encounter a murderous band of robbers, a palace full of suspicious cats, an enraged wild boar, and the secret of Grimald's destructive power in this tale of magic, villainy, and heroism.
