While larger animals like Peshe the tiger run and hide, Tomagochi charges into battle. Will he be victorious? Will the rainforest be saved? Join Tomagochi as he fights to protect his home and discovers just how special he truly is.
A Different Kind of Hero was written with 4 to 8 year olds in mind, but I found this book to be entertaining for all ages. This book takes the reader on a great journey through the eyes of Tomagochi the monkey. In the end he learns he is special.
I don't want to give away the ending, but Tomagochi realizes he's just as special as his rainforest friends.
Although this grandma has a few misgivings about how Tomagochi saves the rainforest I give A Different Kind of Hero a B+ and would recommend to my readers.
My seven year old grandson loved the book and couldn't stop laughing at the end. He gave it an A.
I would advise parents to read the book first to be sure if this is a book for your reading list.
