Rasmus and the Vagabond

Children will eat up this adventure, as they imagine themselves as Rasmus, the runaway orphan. After he escapes the orphanage and "The Hawk" he encounters a tramp. Thankfully, this is the nicest tramp in the world and the two get along famously. Rasmus becomes dedicated to Oscar, God's favorite tramp, and the two pass their time singing or working for food. Things don't stay rosy for long though. The two encounter some masked robbers and the bad guys attempt to put the blame for the stolen goods on the tramps. Oscar and Rasmus must act quickly if they're going to save their reputation and stay out of jail! Rasmus never dreamed that leaving the orphanage would open such a world of adventure and mystery.

Rasmus and the Vagabond is a tale that will delight children, they will identify with Rasmus and his musings and will long for adventure on the road. Any fan of Pippi Longstocking will fall in love with this story, written by the same author. A quick read for all ages with great ink drawings dispersed throughout the story.

I received this book for free from Handlebar Publishing in return for my honest, unbiased review.
