Disclosure: I receive a free copy of this book to facilitate this post. All opinions and love of Rockford T. Honeypot are my own.
The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot what can I say this book captivated me from the moment I received it.
For anyone who knows me, they know reading is a passion of mine. It is what brings \s me joy and feeds my love of adventure. Since being in quarantine I have found my daily intake of books has increased and the adventures I take within the pages have multiplied. When I was invited to take an adventure with Rockford T. Honeypot I jumped at the chase.
Who is 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. When his family abandons him after a mistake that destroys their hazelnut business, Rockford sets off on a legendary journey beyond his wildest dreams. 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.
In the book one of the characters says “No matter the struggles, some things will never change. The sun will rise every morning, the rivers will continue to flow with life, and the vines will resume their never-ending quest to climb toward the sun.” I feel this is a beautiful statement. As I read this book I feel in love with the characters. They were real and they had emotions like fear, love, friendship, and even heartache.
I found this book to be a wonderful read for kids 10 and up. It talks about how Rockford or Rocky fro short faces bullying as a kid. Heartache as an adult. For me, I felt it spoke to our inner soul and made the point that no matter the obstacle we encounter we can overcome and succeed if we keep trying.
As a mom with MS, I could relate to that as times haven’t always been easy but like Rocky, I kept moving forward. With the help of family, friends, and just preserving I was able to create something I was proud of. Just as Rocky went from a shy, scared kid to running his own business.
I highly recommend reading this book as a family and talking about all that Rocky went through. It’s a wonderful story of love, strength, heartache and finding happiness and joy. It’s a perfect summer read for everyone.
