    One thought on “The Daring Adventures of Penhaligon Brush”

    1. I loved this book. It had an awsome story and I couldn't put it down until I read the end. It had fantastic characters. I read it to my litte sister and when I would stop, she would beg me to continue. When I finished, I wished for a sequel.

    2. I bought this for my grandchildren for Christmas on high recommendations. So I quickly read it before I wrapped it!! It was an entertaining adventure and good vs. evil where the right prevails story. The main characters are animals with all the same characteristics and dilemmas as humans. Reminded me of the Redwall series which I enjoyed with my boys when they were growing up. The right always prevailse most important moral we can teach the next generation.

    3. What a great read. Not many books for young readers have this much action and adventure. Great for future readers of the Redwall series.

    4. Reason for Reading: Read aloud to the 9yo. Both my son and I love animal fantasy and the plot sounded like it would be something we would enjoy.Summary: Penhaligon Brush is the town's apothecary. When he was just a cub his parents left him in the care of a Badger family but never came back, so he was raised as a member of that family. When Penhaligon receives a message from his brother Bancroft Badger to come to Porthleven right away, he hurries off. But when he arrives, Penhaligon finds that th [...]

    5. Ooh, Logan loved this. Yeah, it's relatively predictable for those of us who've read a bazillion fantasy swashbucklers. But for Logan, it was a breathless adventure. Like so many stories we read, there were things that went over his head, especially since he likes to play while I read aloud, but he got the main story line of a daring fox and an even more daring vixen (who have some difficulty getting along) joining up with their friends to combat a comically evil cat prince. Friends include a sh [...]

    6. This was a good story, however, I had a hard time with the characters being animals. Don't get me wrong, I love a good story with animals as the main characters. I feel, though, that you have to walk a fine line when writing human stories played by animals. I don't think you should portray them as completely human with the same characteristics. I feel more comfortable with animals who are still animals but toy with the human world (i.e. Beatrix Potter or Kenneth Grahame). So that is why I could [...]

    7. Yes, this is a Childrens/YA book. I bought it at a show in Charlotte because I have been seeing Christen Slade (illustrator) for a couple of years at shows and I love his artwork on Corgi. That being said, the story was an enjoyable read. It is not totally watered down as some children/ya books are, there is a little romance, a little mystery and a little action. The pencil drawings scattered throughout the book are just icing on the cake.

    8. I'm usually not a big fan of talking animal books, but this one was very entertaining! It's like an action-packed, danger-filled Wind in the Willows!

    9. i amnot done with this book but some of the part i liked it it wasn't that funny and some of the part is all about penhaligon.

    10. I'm usually not a big fan of animal books, but this one was very entertaining! It's like an action-packed, danger-filled Wind in the Willows!

    11. A nice adventure with talking animals. Satisfying. Good for middle readers. Nothing really special. Please try it despite the awful cover art.
