Review

Hop on over to our website, friendsofrupert.webs.com to nose around for reviews and interviews of all of our titles.

"There aren't words to describe this second book. Although I believe that both books were written at the same time, the second book is on a higher level than the last book. With new characters and one of the best inclusions of the Honoring of the Dead in a description of Samhain that I have ever read. Real enough to not be "fluffy-bunny" but not to hard for children to cope with or to understand."  ~ PaganDad Patrick McCleary

"Kids will enjoy the stories, although you will probably only read one at a time to very young children, and they will grow into some of the deeper nuances. Adults will enjoy them too, although they may find some of the rhymes tumbling through their head long after they story was read. Heck, I'd give these books to someone interested in knowing more about pagan rituals, but daunted by reading books with 'witch' in the title.  Highly recommended."  ~ Lisa Mc Sherry, Facing North

The second part of this series on the Wiccan holidays is just as wonderful as the first Rupert's Tales continues with stories on the other four major Wiccan holidays. This is a great read for both adults and children!

I love this book. I originally bought it for my toddler to introduce her to the wheel of the year, but have enjoyed reading it for myself just as much! She loves Rupert and we were lucky enough to meet Kyrja. Rupert's Tales really make it easy to teach children what the wheel of the year is all about!

When my first child was born I looked for something just like this to teach her about our faith, but had no luck. I stumbled across this book right after my second daughter was born and am so very happy to have such a beautiful resource.

I brought this for my girls (2 & 6) hoping that it would give them a better idea of the holidays and where the traditions came from. Although some of the stories had details, they only made up a small amount of the story. I was disappointed and left with many unanswered questions and only a vague explanation of the holidays. My two year old liked the pictures and the rabbit narrator (can't expect more than that based on her age). My 6 year old found the back and forth between the characters distracting and couldn't follow the story or understand why I was reading it until I got to the point of each story (where she recognized the traditions). Basically, it is ok if you want a very general overview and don't want to get too involved with the holidays. I'm still looking for a good book for my kids though, this doesn't cut it.

I love the simplicity of it and my kids understand the words. We ordered both books and the activity book at once. The artwork is just beautiful and I'm so happy to find a book for children that is focusing on Pagan beliefs. :)

This book was purchased to use as a teaching tool. There isn't a lot of material available to use for teaching younger children about pagan beliefs or holidays. This book fulfilled the intended purpose in an adorable way. The holidays of Samhain, Yule, Imbolc and Ostara are described by a friendly fairy and observed through a bunny's eyes in a delightful way that grabs the attention of young children. I was delighted at how much the children enjoyed the stories.
