    I loved this book and the other three I read about Burly and Gru

    I loved this book and the other three I read about Burly and Grum.  This the first book in the series…where all the friends meet.  First Burly the Bear, meets Grum the Goblin…then Burly introduces Grum to Michael Angelo, or Mike the Angel, his good friend.

    Grum has been kick out of his home by his mother and two brothers to prove that he is a strong goblin…he needs to do something brave…like kidnap a human.  So he wants to go to a town but neither Burly nor Grum know how to get to one.  Mike says he can get them there but Grum can’t hurt any humans…it is Mike’s job to take care of them.  So Mike zaps them to a town (Mike does everything with energy…he is an angel) and tells them if they get into trouble to just yell for him and he will be right there to help them.

    So their adventure begins in the “Town”.  There is so much to see and most is very scary.  They meet up with Max a young human, since he is a kid he can understand what they say.  He offers to help them thru Town…he knows it like the back of his hand.  After several incidents they really get into trouble they order food and of course have no money so they run.  They try to hide in a Carnival where Grum sees the Carnival Queen and thinks he should kidnap her to take home.  Grum and Max get into a big fight over this and Burly says no way can he kidnap her and that is when they are spotted by the police and the café owner…a chase begins…Burly get shot with a dart…Mike appears.  You will have to read the book to see what happens next.

    I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a fun, light read.  It is good for all ages.  It has wonderful illustrations by Rob Jones…I wish there were more, a lot more and the witting is great. The story is original and always has good morals and a feel good ending.  I love these books in this series for a fun read.  All her books about Burly and Grum are the same fun adventures all with new, fresh storylines.  I can’t wait for more of them.

    Kate Tenbeth also gives a donation to the Born Free Foundation for each book that is purchased.  So how can you go wrong…buying her stories not only do you get a fun filled story that will make you smile (a lot) you are also contributing to a great foundation.

    more from this reviewer



    Another beautiful story about Grum and Burly, this is actually the beginning of their friendship. When Grum is tossed out of Groblin territory by his mom and two brothers he is told to prove himself a true Groblin. He soon finds Burly and strikes a friendship that is meant to last forever.

    When reading Kate's books I'd suggest reading this one first, it is a magical tell of an unlikely friendship and starts the process of Grum and Burly's adventures together. Once again, wonderfully written, and illustrated this is a book that kids will thoroughly enjoy.

    Great fun

    This is a beautifully written story that brings a smile to your face within the first couple of pages. The characters are brought to life by the authors descriptions and enhanced by the illustrations. You can easily imagine Burly and Grum having many more adventures, let's hope they do!
