My son’s review of “The Rat Prince”

RatFinding books that my ten-year-old hasn’t read yet is a challenge. Have you seen our home library? So this year we are concentrating on brand new books. Luckily, I’m an author and my membership in The Sweet Sixteens means I have access to advanced review copies of books that haven’t come out yet.

So far my son has reviewed Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire, The Last Fifth Grade of Emerson Elementary by Laura Shovan, Fenway and Hattie by Victoria Coe, and The Distance to Home by Jenn Bishop. Here’s his review of  The Rat Prince by Bridget Hodder: 

The Rat Prince is an intriguing story I read start to finish in less than twenty four hours. I didn’t put it down, except when my mom made me. It’s a blend of the classic story Cinderella and The Secrets of Nimh. The hook is Cinderella meets the rat guardians of her family and they embark on a great adventure. That the rats have a ruler that is much smarter than you would think for a rat. He’s a good guy. The bad guy is {——} {——–}. As the story unfolds you will see how it resembles the classic tale of Cinderella but still stays mature enough to pull in an upper middle grade audience.

Stay tuned for more reviews!

  1. Wow, thank you both so much! I’m so glad he enjoyed it! (And my villain thanks you for keeping his name out of the spotlight. He works better in secret.)
