I actually agreed to read some books because I found I was no longer reading like I used to. Life was too busy and I was not making time. I did receive this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review. Rasmus was easy to like. He reminded me of my ten year old son, but this boy was an orphan. All Rasmus wanted was a mother and father to care about him. I believe all children want a mother and father to car about them. Too many go without this love they deserve.
Rasmus got tired of the orphanage, so he ran away. He met Oscar, who was a vagabond with a very big heart. The two of them find themselves in the middle of a dangerous adventure. They grow closer through this adventure, too close to part. This book was fun to read, a page turner, filled with meaning. I think my children will both love sinking into this story. It is filled with fun and has an unexpected ending that will warm your heart.
