Poppy and Rye (book review)


This is also the final book in my list for the Four-Legged Friends Challenge.

Poppy and Rye, by Avi, is the sequel toPoppy. In this book, Poppy, a young deer mouse, journeys through the vast Dimwood forest with her porcupine pal, Ereth. Poppy is heartbroken by her fiance Ragweed's death, and she is determined to tell Ragweed's parents the tragic news. However, upon arriving at the once peaceful Brook, she finds that the family has been forced to move up on top of a hill overlooking the Brook. A group of beavers have moved in and flooded their home! Though the family is devastated by the news, Rye, the family's eldest child, is determined to prove himself worthy of beautiful Poppy's love. He wants to do something about the beavers, something brave and daring. However, Rye finds himself a prisoner in the beavers' lodge! Poppy is determined to save Rye and get rid of the beavers once and for all. But will she give her own life to do it?

This was a book full of humor, romance, and adventure. The characters were unique, and also very complex. In the book, some characters appear one way on the outside, but are actually completely different on the inside. This has been a wonderful series so far!

Sounds wonderful. I've only read one Avi book, Strange Happenings, and I really enjoyed his/her? writing style.

You're right, this is a great series to start with. He also wrote a lot of other books, too!
