Down The Mysterly RiverPaperback - 2012
Max "the Wolf" is a top-notch Boy Scout, an expert at orienteering and a master of being prepared. So it is a little odd that he suddenly finds himself, with no recollection of his immediate past, lost in an unfamiliar wood. Even odder still, he encounters a badger named Banderbrock, a black bear named Walden, and McTavish the Monster (who might also be an old barn cat)--all of whom talk--and who are as clueless as Max.
Before long, Max and his friends are on the run from a relentless group of hunters and their deadly hounds. Armed with powerful blue swords and known as the Blue Cutters, these hunters capture and change the very essence of their prey. For what purpose, Max can't guess. But unless he can solve the mystery of the strange forested world he's landed in, Max may find himself and his friends changed beyond recognition, lost in a lost world....

Max the Wolf was a wolf in exactly the same way that foothills are made up of real feet and a tiger shark is part tiger, which is to say, not at all.
If he's a hero, then I'm the long-lost son of an improbable union between a flounder and a mountain goat -- Banderbrock about McTavish
(Max)"...most detection is simply a process of elimination." "You think better after you poop?" McTavish said. "Me too! Maybe I could be a detective."
On my worst day, I could beat a sackful of badgers. I could beat you if I was two days dead, rotting, and partially eaten. -- McTavish
