Read full description of the books:
Think of Lord of the Rings, mixed up with a bit of Game of Thrones with maybe even a dash of The Odyssey...with mice as the main characters. It sounds silly, but let me assure you, it's not nearly as silly as it sounds. This is a pretty serious fantasy adventure, and using mice, ferrets, and other animals as characters enhanced rather than detracted from the story. This serves as a prequel to the very first Mouse Guard series, and we get to see a great quest. The quest is a time honored tradition of great fantasy, and this series lives up to it. As always, the art is fantastic and the coloring is great. Really helps tell the story the right way.
It's probably hard to see how stories starring mice could be as good as people say it is, but the only way for you to find out is to try it for yourself. You still may not like it, but there's a good chance you will be pleasantly surprised.
UPDATE: I did a re-read of this one and was shocked at just how much emotion was in this story. I think I missed some of the impact on the first reading, but on the re-read I really noticed how much the author made us feel for these characters, whether hero or villain. The fact the characters were talking animals only made this more impressive. Pretty deep for what at first glance looks like a children's book, but actually has much broader appeal.
