HASH(0x8d915e6c) out of 5 stars "Eny Meeny Miny Moe...Catch a minky by the toe..." [Guisseppi Tucci ] 29 Aug. 2008
By Robert Lanson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had initially bought the book for my niece's daughters who are big animal lovers. Just before mailing it out I opened it up to read a random page or two to get a sense of what it was about. By chance I happened to turn to the part where "COBRA" their version of "special forces", were just about to launch a military style rescue mission. I was so intrigued by the author's description of it I immediately turned to the beginning to get an idea of why this was happening. Once I read the prologue and was introduced to Guisseppi Tucci, the mink farmer, I had to continue. Well two days later, I had my answer and then some. Not only did I find out why there was a needed rescue, but I learned a lot about the weasel like mammal and the cruelty of mink farming itself. Great book with a great ending. But I was sad when it did end, because I came to love all the characters. This would be a good book for kids or "really big kids" [adults] to read over a cold rainy or snowy weekend. Also would be a good gift for Christmas as a "stocking stuffer". Just don't open the book until after you give it, or you will have to buy a second one like I did.

By Blown Away in Belle Vernon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Being an A+ honors English student, I wasn't quite sure how I was going to react to this book without any previous knowledge. From the urging of a family friend, I read the book and was amazed at the imagination and creativity brought forth. I usually read the "Nicholas Sparks type books" so this was a change of pace, so to speak; I could never put the book down and was excited to witness each great turmoil and adventure unfold. Grammatically this novel was superb; I wouldn't be the least bit shocked if this were to be a pre-requisite for the SAT's. Personal recommendations for this book would effortlessly range from my 12 year old brother to my parents and teachers. I applaud Miss Rolison-Hanna. She truly has talent, and I am eager to read more great works of hers.
HASH(0x8d916148) out of 5 stars A REALLY GOOD READ 27 Mar. 2009
By Hallie Robertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
THIS IS A VERY GOOD STORY ABOUT THE WAY THAT ANIMALS ARE TREATED WHEN THEY ARE "FUTURE COATS" AND REALLY MIND BOGGLING WHEN YOU LEARN HOW MANY MINK PELTS ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE A COAT. THE STORY IS WELL-WRITTEN AND HELD MY INTEREST; I LIKE THE WAY IT WAS WRITTEN AS THOUGH MINKS DO HAVE THEIR OWN REALMS AND FAMILIES( AND WHO CAN SAY THAT THEY DON'T?) I THINK THAT MANY TEACHERS CAN USE THIS BOOK AS A CLASSROOM TOOL TO TEACH THEIR STUDENTS ABOUT ANIMAL ABUSE. I BELIEVE THAT ANIMALS HAVE HEART AND SOUL JUST LIKE HUMANS........ WELL-DONE MISS ROLISON-HANNA!
HASH(0x8d916388) out of 5 stars excellent read 3 Jun. 2009
By Michael L. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Robyn Rolison-Hanna has created a unique and powerful story. Seemingly about an aristocratic mink and his not-so-aristocratic cousin the story transports us seamlessly into their world. A powerful love story, exciting military adventure and tale of courage and redemption all set in the world of minkdom makes this extremely captivating and enjoyable to read. Well-researched, it only adds to the realism of the story. The illustrations are very creative and give a sense of realism and recognition to the characters. Thank you, can't wait to see whar's next.
