Book Review: The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot

The Adventures of Rockford T. HoneypotI received and advanced copy of the book, Rockford T. Honeypot for review purposes. Opinions are my own.

Today is the release day for Rockford T. Honeypot, this new book, written by Josh Gottsegen is a tale of adventure. The book is about a young chipmunk who was rejected by his family and left to fend for himself. In his journey of self-discovery he finds that he has much more to offer the world than he ever imagined. Andy and I have been reading the book together and enjoying the life lessons inside. It is also rather entertaining and fun. Obviously Josh is a fan of Star Trek which is evidenced by Rockford’s hero being a one Captain James T.

Book Review: The Way to Rio Luna by Zoraida Córdova

Reading The Way to Rio Luna

Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00528

We received a copy of The Way to Rio Luna for free to read and review. Opinions are our own.

I am a fan of fantasy books. I’ve read all of the Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter and the like. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that approaches magic quite like this one. Our main character, Danny Monteverde appears to have read these books as well and he believes that magic is real. It is his belief in magic that gets him through some very difficult times in his life.

Danny is a foster kid who has been kicking around from home to home. His older sister is placed in separate foster care but she goes missing. It is up to Danny to find her and he believes that she has found a way to Rio Luna. Rio Luna is the land of some fairy tales that he and his sister loved and Danny is out to prove that it is real. His personal mission is to find this Rio Luna and his sister.

I read it and enjoyed it. I gave it to Andy to read and found him crying. The beginning of the book is rather sad. You have this boy, Danny who loses everything including his big sister. He is shuffled from foster family to foster family and never quite finds the right place. He’s desperately searching again hope to find his sister. It’s a bit heavy for an eight-year old who is quite sensitive. I encouraged him to keep at it because Danny has hope and he, Andy the reader, should also have hope. He continued to read and enjoyed it.

The book is recommended for ages 8-12). More information abort the book can be found below. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the book, please consider our affiliate link. below as well. Continue reading Book Review: The Way to Rio Luna by Zoraida Córdova
