What makes Isaiah so unique? First, his fur is as blue as the sky --- which until recently was something he'd never seen, but had read all about. That's right ---Isaiah can read, and write. He can also talk to humans...if any of them are willing to listen! After a dramatic escape from a mysterious laboratory, Isaiah is separated from his "mischief" (which is the word for a mouse family), and has to use his special skills to survive in the dangerous outdoors, and hopefully find his missing family.

Someone cursed Runt Higgins to die on his sixteenth birthday, but no one seems to know who cursed him or why. Runt decides he must find the Great Library, where all true knowledge is hidden. Unfortunately, the only people who know the location of the Great Library are a covert network of librarian-spies who’d rather die than give up the Library’s secrets. And when one of Runt’s professors is attacked, it soon becomes clear that others are also out to find the Library at any cost.

No student is prouder to be at Dr. Critchlore’s than Runt Higgins, a twelve-year-old werewolf. He loves his classes --- like History of Henchmen and Introduction to Explosives. He loves his friends --- like Darthin the gargoyle and Syke the tree nymph. And he loves his foster family, who took him in when his wolf pack couldn’t. After a series of disasters, each worse than the next, it’s clear that someone is trying to shut the school down. It’s up to Runt, who knows the place better than anybody, to figure out who’s behind the attack...and to save his home, and Dr. Critchlore himself, from total destruction.
