Overview

Nurk: The Strange, Surprising Adventures of a (Somewhat) Brave Shrew by Ursula Vernon

Nurk is a quiet homebody of a shrew. But when a mysterious plea for help arrives in the mail, he invokes the spirit of his fearless warrior-shrew grandmother, Surka, and sets off to find the sender. It seems the prince of the dragonflies has been kidnapped, and Nurk is his last hope for rescue. Such a mission would be daunting for even the biggest, baddest, and bravest of shrews, and Nurk is neither big nor bad, and only a little brave. But he does his very best—and hopes his grandmother would be proud.

Nurk is a warm, wonderful, and hilarious illustrated adventure about courage, family legacies, and friendships of a most unusual nature.

This is an interesting and funny story that adults can enjoy as much as their children. Ursula has a wonderful sense of humor and a very original imagination.

Love the book, not too pleased that the images don't display in the web reading app. I don't think I'm going to be buying Nook ebooks again.
