Fungle is a Gnole: an intelligent, mole-like creature living the wilds of the Smoky Mountains. Fearing the ominous signs of human encroachment -- razed trees, bulldozed land, blasted mountains -- and given special urgency by a mission to stop a powerful demon from getting hold of a device that can destroy the earth, Fungle embarks on a daunting quest: find the device before the demon or the human can get hold of it and turn the world into a wasteland.
Fungle's adventures eventually lead him to the concrete heart of Manhattan, where he becomes a media phenomenon. Likeable, magical, witty and wise, he captures the affections of the world -- until the Division of Parapsychological Research, a secret, slush-funded government unit, sequesters Fungle in its guarded facility and begins conducting its experiments.
Packed with dazzling escapes and quirky characters, The Gnole is an Old English fairy tale told to a rock and roll beat. It's an urban Wind in the Willows, it's Bilbo Takes Manhattan; it's the ultimate collision of cultures.
The Ecology Movement has never had a mascot -- until now.
