Gr 4-7 This adaptation provides a look at the origins of the cat Scourge, the evil leader of the Bloodclan. Tiny is a fearful house kitten who is the runt of the litter. Once he strikes out on his own, though, he renames himself Scourge and vows to take revenge on the wild forest cats who once attacked him. Though drawn and laid out in a manga style, the illustrations are more detailed than typical manga drawings and effectively bring out the cats's personalities and characters. This is not a cuddly animal tale: there are some vicious attacks, one ending in a death.Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY Copyright 2009 School Library Journal, LLC Used with permission.
