The Builders

The Builders - Daniel Polansky There's a lot of other reviews comparing this to the Redwall series by Brian Jacques, but apart from anthropomorphic animals there's not a lot of similarities. If anything, it put me more in mind of Rango with the settings and characters.

This isn't necessarily a book for kids. It's more Magnificent Seven (and Seven Samurai by association) done with animals.

The Captain (a mouse) gets his old crew together to go and settle some old scores in an old West backdrop.
A short and bloody read, the characters are well written and the pacing is just right.
