Runt the Hunted

From time to time, I will post a review of an excellent book for reluctant readers. Here is one that I just posted to: http://www.heartlandreviews.com/Young_Adult.html

Title: Runt the Hunted
Author: Daniel Schwabauer
Publisher and/or Distributor: Clear Water Press
Publisher Website:
www.clearwaterpress.com
Pages: 304
ISBN: 978-09742972-3-1
Price: $17.99
Publishing Date: July 2007
Reader: Bob Spear
Rating: 5 hearts


This children’s fantasy sequel to Runt the Brave is a stand-alone story of Runt JaRed, the small mouse, and his tribulations with the unjust, mad King SoSheth of the mouse colony Tira-nor. Runt must somehow stay alive while foiling an overwhelming attack by evil rats. For readers of the Old Testament, you will recognize many arch-type parallels with the David and Saul story.

The author has the uncanny ability to turn animal characters into human-like roles. He compares very favorably with Jacques’ Redwall series. This is a perfect book for reluctant readers and can be read at multiple levels. We rated it a high five hearts.

Thanks for the review. As an avid reader, books are so important to me in raising my family. Even though my son is only 8 months old, I'm on the lookout for good books.
