Another rare children’s book sits atop today’s Buffet, Into the Wild, the first installment in the #1 bestselling “Warriors” fantasy series by Erin Hunter. This book, for readers Grade 5 and up, first appeared in hardcover in 2003. The story is about a young domestic cat named Rusty who leaves his human owners to join a group of forest-dwelling feral cats called ThunderClan, adopting a new name: Firepaw.
Erin Hunter is a pseudonym used by the authors Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry, Gillian Philip, Inbali Iserles, and Tui Sutherland, along with editor Victoria Holmes. Each of the authors play a different role: while Holmes creates the storyline of each book, Cary, Baldry, and Sutherland take turns writing the books. Sutherland joined the group later and writes mostly for the Seekers series; she has written fewer Warriors books, with all of them being field guides. In addition, another person who is not an Erin Hunter writes the manga: Dan Jolley. The newest addition to the group is Inbali Iserles, who writes Survivors under the pseudonym as well.
