Book Review: Rupert

Title: Rupert

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Rupert was a cute little story. This book is another from This wasn't my favorite children's book but it still had a great message.

This is the story of a little pig born into a wealthy family. The parents of Rupert want him to join the family business. They have planned his whole life. He struggles with this because he loves his parents, but he also wants to create his own path in life.

I am not sure the rhymes really worked in this one, I also think it made the book suitable for younger readers. Some of the rhymes end up feeling forced and not natural. It would be a better story if it wasn't done in a rhyme style.

Overall, Rupert would be a great book to add to any child's library.

Goodreads Description:
