Meerkat Wars by H.S. Toshack
Goodreads Description: It s all very well helping a young meerkat who s been poisoned by a scorpion. But when you've made friends with the whole Duwara tribe of meerkats, and you discover that they're at war with the Utongo, you may find yourself involved in that too, even if you re only a little black-and-white cat. And when you realise that the two tribes are fighting because each one believes it lives under The One True Sun, then you may have to undertake a very dangerous journey to help them see things differently. You may have to go through The Gorge.
My thoughts: I really loved this book! But then, I really love the Redwall series too! This was such a good story. It was about Sheena, a common housecat, that gets lost in the middle of the African wild.
She meets up with, and starts living with a tribe of meerkats. It's amazing the adventures that Sheena finds herself in, and the plans that she comes up with. Yikes, scorpions and flesh-eating ants?!! I loved the personalities of all the animals, especially Sheena, Spickle - the baby porcupine, and Pebble - the Meerkat.
A wonderful middle-grade book!
