"In a world of talking animals, there is one burning question: Did humans ever exist? Thelonious Chipmunk believes he has proof that they did: a postcard showing a building made of concrete and glass. But his sister thinks the postcard's just a dumb piece of paper, and that humans are only make-believe. Then one day a flash flood carries Thelonious away. When he comes to, he's in a strange world that looks something like his postcard, but not quite. Then he realizes that this is the city on his postcard, only crumbling and decaying. But if this means humans did exist, where did they go? Thelonious, along with some new friends, sets off to find out. And thus, the adventure begins!"--Amazon.

This animal adventure tale, written in chapters alternating between text and comic format, is set in a future time after humans have become extinct. Easy to read, yet exciting, it offers appeal for fans of graphic novels, science fiction, and adventure. First title in the Fog Mound series. For grades 3-6.

"Thelonious is a young chipmunk who lives in a world where humans exist only in legend. During a violent rainstorm, his tree is ripped from the ground, and he is swept away to a city populated by animals of the lowest criminal element. He soon finds himself in the company of Olive, a bear with a gift for mechanics; Fitzgerald, a porcupine who guards the books that were left behind when the humans died; and Brown, a shifty lizard who joins their group to escape a life of slavery. together they must find their way back to the idyllic commune that exists atop the Fog Mound. In doing so, they will discover clues as to what happened to the humans." (Novelist Review)
