Urso BrunovAmazon.com recently updated its online catalogue to include an entry for a brand new book from Brian Jacques entitled 'Urso Brunov and the White Emperor'. Less than a week later, that title was amended to The Tale of Urso Brunov and the White Emperor.

Written by Brian Jacques and illustrated by Alexi Natchev, the book appears to be a sequel to their last collaboration, 2003's The Tale of Urso Brunov.

The book is tentatively 40 pages long.

Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the book at this time, although we can surmise from the title that there is a character known as "the White Emperor". Will he be friend or foe?

The Tale of Urso Brunov and the White Emperor will hit stores October 16th, 2008. Its ISBN-10# is 0399245448 and its ISBN-13# is 978-0399245442.
