I picked this up at a dollar store because it looked interesting, even though it was clear it was a book for older kids (10 and up). An interesting story with some fun characters - a Boy Scout, a badger, a bear, and a barn cat as the main ones. Mysterious Blue Cutters are after them and none of them knows why, nor how each got to the strange land they find themselves in. A little bit Wizard of Oz-like with some good twists and turns and good writing.

A nicely written young adult fantasy from an author most famous for his comic book work, also containing a number of wonderful illustrations. The story was a pleasant read, though it did contain a few scenes of violence and a few character deaths that may be disturbing to sensitive readers. My only complaint with the book is that it felt like the first in a series and I wish more had followed.
