Nurk: The Strange, Surprising Adventures of a (Somewhat) Brave Shrew

Лицевая обложка
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1 июн. 2008 г. - Всего страниц: 144
Nurk is a quiet homebody of a shrew. But when a mysterious plea for help arrives in the mail, he invokes the spirit of his fearless warrior-shrew grandmother, Surka, and sets off to find the sender. It seems the prince of the dragonflies has been kidnapped, and Nurk is his last hope for rescue. Such a mission would be daunting for even the biggest, baddest, and bravest of shrews, and Nurk is neither big nor bad, and only a little brave. But he does his very best--and hopes his grandmother would be proud. Nurk is a warm, wonderful, and hilarious illustrated adventure about courage, family legacies, and friendships of a most unusual nature.

This is a sweet, delightful adventure book, without violence but with lots of heart. I love it, and it would be great to read to even a very young child. I want to write like then when I grown up! (N.B. I'm in my 40s) Читать весь отзыв
