belongs to a race of creatures that are part jack rabbit, part prairie
dog and part human, called the Montmers. Perloo would just like to
be left alone in his den reading Montmer history and mythology but the
Montmer leader, Jolaine, summons Perloo to her side just before she dies
and names Perloo her successor. Jolaine's scheming son, Berwig, is
very angry at his mother and with Perloo and plots to declare war on their
neighboring arch enemies, the Felbarts who are half coyote and half human.
Perloo is taken prisoner by the Felbarts and is faced with a responsibility
that he doesn't want. Does Perloo become the leader of the Montmers?
