MIDNIGHT MARAUDERS

Mrs. Trowbridge referred to Shrew Kahn frequently when she wrote on historical topics. He was held in the highest esteem by Trowbridge shrews for his might in battle, his courage, and integrity.

I really hate it when I wake up to burning arrows and the house under siege! Usually it's because the cats have been up to something and have ticked off the neighbors. Wonderful story to go with an equally super illustration. Way cool.
