The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot
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. Until one day, he sets off on a legendary journey beyond his wildest dreams!
The moment Rockford’s adventure begins, he is is quickly launched into a journey that takes him to places he couldn’t have imagined in his wildest dreams—from the fast-paced kitchen of a city restaurant to the mysterious mountain sanctuary of warrior monks waiting for a legendary chipmunk to fulfill their prophecy, to a seedy swampland run by a gang of termites. Along the way, Rockford also meets a colorful assortment of characters—including Chuck, a smooth-talking hawk pilot; Jewel, a beautiful heiress with a heart of gold; and Braxton, a villainous chipmunk from Rockford’s past who is intent on stealing every scrap of his success. Throughout this journey, Rockford learns the true value of never giving up, following your dreams in the face of adversity, and finding your place in a world that doesn’t understand your passions.
This book is a chapter book that was perfect for reading it to my kids at night before bed. We started a tradition since they were toddlers that we would read a book before bed every night. One thing I liked about The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot is that every chapter built up anticipation of what was going to happen next, and my kids actually looked forward to bed every night because of it!
So rather than give my perspective on and opinion of the book I decided to let my kids do a review on it and asked them some questions.
