I loved this story!

I picked it up specifically because of the blurb about the author’s name in the back and ended up really enjoying this story.

Rump is a young boy that has no idea why his mother named him Rump. He is constantly picked on for it and nothing seems to go right for him. Living with his gran, Rump works in the mines every day trying to find gold so that him and his gran can eat. This is the story of a little boy that discovers the true nature of his name and what that means for him.

A super fun adventure story that I definitely recommend!
