The boys have been doing a lot of reading this summer. We were so excited to receive a great new summer read, introducing The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot, a book review. If you’ve got readers between the ages of 8 -13, this is the book to make sure to add it to your library this summer!
I was very impressed as soon as I read the first chapter. It’s beautifully written and I loved how Gottsegen was able to describe such a beautiful setting that continued on into the story. The storyline included some great lessons for kids to learn from. Rockford is forced to get out of his comfort zone and it all ends up working out. Adventures and dreams are what make for an amazing life, am I right?

As a young chipmunk, shy, bookish Rockford T. Honeypot had dreams of thrilling adventures across the forest. However, timid of danger and germs, his only adventures were found in books and his imagination.

From exploring cuisines with a famous chef, training with ancient warrior monks, flying on giant hawks, finding true love, and much more, Rockford recounts his epic origin story of hardship, perseverance, and fortune.
