Which of life’s biggest lessons can be learned from the smallest amongst us? A young mouse learns that compassion and kindness are the great virtues in The Owlhen Caregiver. Meanwhile, Piper the Listener finds a brave mouse venturing into wild country to learn the tongues of other beasts. And finally, a grizzled oldfur shares the lesson of putting a whisker out too far in The Wild Wolf.

The stories are released as a series of miniseries available as individual comic issues first, and then collected into hardcover volumes.
