Maddie says she loved this series for the tribe of feline characters, beginning with the pet cat Rusty, who adventures into the wild and meets up with the ThunderClan.

The animals’ descriptions and personalities made them seem real; she imagined their world and engaged in their adventures and the dangers they faced.

Maddie cited the suspenseful writing style as keeping her engaged through four novels and counting.

My kid loves this series because it revolves around cats as well as warriors, vendettas, and clans. 

This book and its successors are the first full-length novels that my kid has read—that is primarily why I would recommend Warriors for this age range.

Only a few books can engross a reader so fully they forget to play video games. This first book in the Warrior series is so captivating it will cause the most reluctant reader to spend hours turning pages. This book focuses on clans of wild cats.  It is full of heroism and adventure. As a writer, I am always searching for characters to keep my readers engaged. Erin Hunters has done a masterful job with each and every one of her many feline characters. Is this book all about cats? Yes. It is fun and engaging? Absolutely.
