5.0 out of 5 stars Poppy, the mouse with the big heart, is on another adventure
In his sequel, Avi lets his readers know what happened in the time and space before the last chapter of Poppy. Caster P. Canad, the beaver, looms large on the cover to represent the nemesis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poppy, the mouse with the big heart, is on another adventure, June 6 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Hardcover)
In his sequel, Avi lets his readers know what happened in the time and space before the last chapter of Poppy. Caster P. Canad, the beaver, looms large on the cover to represent the nemesis. Young readers will learn that not all foes have such evil intent as Mr. Ocax. Some make themselves enemies by their selfish desire for power and prestige. I read this novel to 4th and 5th graders in my Elementary School Library. The students once again cheered Poppy, laughed hysterically at Ereth's snyde remarks and found a new romantic hero in Rye. In George Lucas-esque fashion, Avi has gone back and written "Ragweed" to tell the story of the elder brother's adventures before he comes to Dimwood Forest. These characters are ready and waiting for stardom in a Disney movie. My students are demanding a sequel to Poppy and Rye. Perhaps one of their children will grow into a romantic with an adventurous spirit like their parents? Avi...are you listening?

5.0 out of 5 stars A story of adventure and romance., April 12 1999
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Paperback)
Our class read the book Popppy and Rye by Avi. This book is probably good for grades 3 and 4. This book had some romance and some adventure. We think that the book is related to issues in the world like war over land. In this book, the war is between beavers and mice. The story takes place in Dimwood Forest and a brook that turns into a pond from the beaver dam. The characters are Ereth the porcupine, who is a real snap-mouth, and Poppy the mouse, who is the main character. She is a mouse who is trying to get rid of the beavers to save their home. We would recommend this book to people who like animals and adventure, and also romance! It is an exciting book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avi is great!, Oct. 9 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Paperback)
With wonderful expression and a heartwarming story line,POPPY AND RYE is wonderful.This 200 page book was just the appropriate length,and not once tiring.The wonderful plot of two mice madly in love is juvinily romantic,and the insincere personality of Mr. Caster Canad is delightfully entertaining.(And I mean that,sincerely) The Numer One veteran of writing books has to be Avi.He knows how to grab your heart on page 1 and not let go until the very last word.I also suggest you read one of his earlier works,THE TRUE CONNFESSIONS OF CHARLOTTE DOYLE. Live long Avi!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This sequel to Avi's Poppy is wonderful!, May 24 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Hardcover)
I have just finished reading Poppy and Rye and would like to encourage Avi fans to make sure they read this book. The story continues with Poppy and Ereth as they go to locate Ragweed's family to inform them of his death. Poppy, of course, meets Ragweed's brother, Rye. Rye feels inferior to Ragweed and struggles to find a "place in his family." You really get to know each character as the story progesses along with an interesting story. I hope there will be a continuation of the series of Poppy books. Wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER ONE!!!, Jan. 31 2003

Jasmine (wanna know where i am?! to bad) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Paperback)
Well, Poppy and Erith are going to tell Ragweed's parents that he died, so on their way they meet Rye, who just so happens to be Ragweed's brother he is out seasrching for Ragweed, and then they break the news to him that Ragweed died, which actually might be a not so bad thing, because for Rye being second best in his family was a way of life they liked Ragweed better, but now would be a perfect chance for Rye to prove himself, I could tell you what happens, but you'll just have to read the book!.............!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the original!, June 12 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Paperback)
I loved this book! Poppy has to travel to Ragweed's family's home to inform them of his death but when she gets theur she discovers a conflict between the mouses and the bevers that could run Ragweed's family out of their treasured home. She also finds a mouse named Rye, who looks much like Ragweed himself and she finds herself falling for Rye... the same way she loved Ragweed.
If you liked the original you'll love the sequel. It has just as much excitement as the first!

By A Customer
This review is from: Poppy And Rye (Paperback)
We thought it was one of the best books we've ever read! We enjoyed it thoroughly and recommened it for young readers. We've always loved Ereth's alliteration. ERETH IS THE BEST!!!!!! We all love Poppy's adventurous spirit. We hope you come out with another book just as good, if not better.
