Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Summary: Once upon a time — that time being now — the kingdom of Felinia was taken over by the nefarious King Griffen, an anthropomorphic cat who spends all his time in bed. Determined to free Felinia from his evil clutches is a group of dogs set on deposing the king and restoring the just Prince Atticus to the throne, all while freeing the Maiden Poodle, a renowned sorceress and revolutionary from the castle dungeons.

Author S.G. Browne’s adult novels are known for their intriguing premises and biting satire, but his latest story is a complete departure from all that.

Written for children, and children at heart, Browne’s independently published novella is set in the fictional kindgom of Felinia, where once upon a time royal cats and peasant dogs lived together in harmony.

That all changed however when the evil King Griffen stole the throne from his Uncle, relegating dogs to a life of servitude and stale kibble. Now it’s up to a group of rebellious pooches to dethrone King Griffen and restore order to Felinia — if they can stop chasing the mailman long enough to do it.
