Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard, Vol. 1, by Various Artists

This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series 2022 Reads

My son took an interest in this boxed set, which I got for my wife a couple of years ago. So… I sat down and read Volume 1 to him in a single sitting. He adored it, and was crestfallen that we couldn’t read Vol. 2 immediately. (But by that point—after about an hour and forty minutes straight of doing voices—my throat was getting a bit hoarse and it was his bedtime.)

This series consistes of short Mouse Guard-related tales by other authors. They’re lore set in the world, but aren’t canonical events so much as folktales, legends, and fairy tales shared by the mice during a storytelling contest. Some of the pieces are stronger than others, some more enchantingly drawn, but I found the volume—and the variety—entertaining overall.
