Dive into the exciting, heartwarming and unforgettable adventure of The Legend of Vinny Whiskers by Gregory Kemp.

Author: Gregory Kemp

Boomerlang Lookout feared that he couldn’t live up to his name. Before him, another black-tailed prairie dog who had the same name was a legend. He built underground tunnels, connecting the ward to the outside world. The tunnels allowed the animals to move freely—all animals, not just the prairie dogs. But when Boomerang and his pals left the ward forever, he left a rat named Vinny Whiskers in charge. Unfortunately, Vinny’s big mistake was giving the sewer rats free reign of the tunnels.

The Lookout Maneuvre

The new Boomerang Lookout, nicknamed Boomer, feels inadequate. He can’t even do “The Lookout Maneuvre,” a body-elongating technique that the Lookout family is known for. His friend Mr. Thin Fur assures him that, while he’s a Lookout, he has unique talents of his own.

Beyond the Fence

Boomer is curious about what lays beyond the ward. But no prairie dog has ever left and returned with stories of the outside world. Only the tree gypsies come and go over the great fence. With a thirst for adventure, Boomer and his two friends, Pinky and Mr. Thin Fur, embark on a journey beyond the fence. They encounter a world they didn’t know existed—a world of danger, wonder and friendships.

The Bottom Line

The Legend of Vinny Whiskers is so much more than a children’s novel. It’s an inspirational tale that explores life’s many lessons: friendship, freedom, bravery, individuality, and unity. The animals in this story overcome personal challenges and discover who they truly are individually. The world isn’t made of cookie-cutter molds. Everyone has a talent that makes them unique. And even those who appear weak have strength and courage buried deep inside.

Stay tuned for an interview with Gregory Kemp, author of The Legend of Vinny Whiskers.
