    Fantastic new series! Highly recommend!

    Ive read three of Patricia Puddle's books and have enjoyed them all. Her Molly Gumnut (which is such an awesome name, btw) series are my favourite. Pubble has the kind of humour that will have kids giggling and parents laughing. Each of us can relate to something that happens to Molly and bring us back to our own childhood. I'd recommend this series to any middle grade kid - its definately worth the read!

    Molly is quite a character that you will grow to love very much.
    She acts silly at times but she has a big heart. When she rescues the baby bandicoot, she goes all the way to make sure the bandicoot is safe and 'bulldoze' anyone else that comes in the way. Molly is sure to stir up you emotions deep inside. She'll make you smile, laugh,and sad. It's a must read for all adventurous kids and adults as well.

    Wonderful Book

    Molly is one of those kids who loves animals. A class project, where she has to take a picture of a native animal is the beginning to this wonderful story. When she sees the neighbor¿s cat attack a bandicoot, Molly jumps in to save him. She is not supposed to have the bandicoot as they are an endangered animal. She begs her dad to let her keep him. She even names him Furble. Dad takes the animal to her grandmother¿s house because she is one of a few people allowed to nurse the animal back to health as a wildlife rescue officer. Molly is not very happy when her grandmother tells her that they will release the animal back where he was found when he is healthy. It is here where she decides that she will have to take matters into her own hands. Molly is allowed to help her grandmother, but almost blows it by trying to get a picture of it for her school project. She is constantly getting herself in trouble trying to do the right thing. For example she goes to talk to the neighbor whose cat injured Furble and comes across as rude and almost loses her opportunity to help her grandmother. It doesn¿t help that she has a snotty little classmate named Gretchen who tries her hardest to see that Molly is always in trouble. This was a wonderful book that shows kids that they need to stand up for what they believe in, but at the same time there is a right and wrong way to do it. Both boys and girls will enjoy this book. Molly¿s antics will keep the reader rolling.

    Patricia Puddle Delivers Again

    I bought this book for my grandaughter because she loved Star-Crossed Rascals, the debut book for the author. I asked her which one she liked better. Her reply: I can't relly answer that because I love them equally.

    The author's ability to reach into the psyche of children and take them into convulsions of laughter was delivered in this book once again. I loved it as an adult and my grandaughter can't wait for more of Patricia Puddles books.

    Kudos to the author. She is an amazing writer.

    I LOVE Molly!

    I purchased this e-book for my kids who are age 7 and 9. We all LOVED Molly. She has such a passion for animals. She rescues a bandicoot from a cat and nurses it back to health. The story is brilliantly funny, amusing, sweet, and a fantastic read. Molly captured our hearts with her compassion, humor, and personality. She gets into all kinds of trouble, all in the name of saving this wonderful animal. I fell in love with Molly and the bandicoot. I learned lots of cool facts too in a fun telling story way. I had never even heard of a bandicoot until I read this book. This author has a special way of reaching children with humor and creativity. My son seems to get bored easily when reading, but he was totally entertained, as well as my daughter. I highly enjoyed it and I know people of any age will, too. This book was a pure delight!

    Absolutely loved this story!

    As part of a school assignment, Molly's supposed to take a picture of a wildlife animal. Luckily for her, on the way back from the river Molly saves an injured rat-like animal from the claws of the neighbour's cat. Her father explains that the rat isn't a rat but a bandicoot and that she can't keep him because they need to grow in the wilderness where they can scavenge for food and build a family. Molly isn't convinced because the little critter sure looks like he would like someone to take care of him, so she vows to persuade her parents to let her keep the animal. How she does that is cute and funny since, the more Molly tries the more she messes up, until the only option she sees is to kidnap the little animal from her grandma who's a wildlife rescue officer. Molly Gumnut Rescues a Bandicoot is a middle grade adventure for boys and girls aged 8 to 12 with lots of good twists. The language is kept age appropriate with a few difficult words to keep kids entertained and maybe provide a bit of a challenge. Molly's character is absolutely endearing. She is a funny, little girl with a bit of an attitude and a mind of her own. She simply adores animals and that's usually a good thing, but people around her just don't want to see it. The humour was great, the plot kept me wondering what would happen next. A thoroughly enjoyable read for the young and young-at-heart.
