Bruce and the Road to Honesty
This is the second book in the continuing adventure series that began with Bruce and the Road to Courage.
Bruce and his companions returned home as heroes, having saved many from the tyranny of the evil bat, Stang. Bruce's real victory, however, was in learning his own worth and the value of his friends and family.
Now, as he prepares to change into a butterfly, Bruce's parents share a secret that sends him away again in search of a home he never knew he had. On the journey, Bruce is caught in a storm of conflicting emotions and doubt, learning of the anguish that accompanies deception and how hard it is to do what's right when things are not what they seem.
"The author has created a set of likeable characters who, along with Bruce, will make this an exciting read. . . . The adventures are endearing and children will find them delightful and enjoyable. The book is fast paced and can hold the attention of young children. The creativity and aesthetic abilities of the writer are noticeable while reading the story, and the book has a good message which makes it a perfect story for children.
I liked the open ending of the story which calls for more adventures with Stang and his bad ways. An enjoyable story for children with a lot of
action and adventure."
