"Funny and clever early reader done in the format of a graphic novel. Protagonist is a stuffed rabbit nicknamed Raggy; the real story is how he got his name Ragnar. One day Raggy's human owner, Max, goes to the library with his grandpa. They return home with a book about Vikings. Max and Raggy begin to act out Viking adventures. Max builds a Viking ship with the help of his parents and Raggy.

The next day, they are about to launch their ship when Raggy is whisked away by a vulture. I won't give away the plot, but I can say Raggy will encounter a Ninja, and a helicopter before being kidnapped again. Max is disconsolate; the family searches for two weeks. At the end of the story, readers are still unaware of the whereabouts of Raggy, now named Rangar in honor of a famous Viking warrior. What has happened to the dedicated stuffed rabbit? Will he be reunited with Max? Guess we will find out in Book 2.

The simple vocabulary and speech balloons allow early readers to master the text and follow the emotions of the characters, including the adorable ants who comment and have their own little adventures while following Max and Raggy. Nice bedtime story, but particularly recommended for reluctant readers or as a beginning reader for ages four through seven.

"Great, fun idea for a book. Kids will love the comic book read and the excitement of following along with a rabbit, a couple of ants as they take a journey. This is part one, but it can be read as a stand alone. It would be great for readers to grab book 2 and find the answer to the name game going on. The author did a great job with a book that will keep attention and leave young readers wanting more." said.

"A really fun read for children and adults alike. The story is cute and the illustrations are very charming. I I especially love the ants. They are so funny. I kind of felt a little disappointed with the ending, but because of that I'm looking forward to the next book in the series." said.

"Ragnar Rabbit is the star of his own book series. The story is laid out like a comic strip with each page being a full panel. This gives plenty of room for each illustration, the story itself and even a little bit of fun with some interrupting ants (you just need to read it).

The story is lots of fun. Ragnar is on a mission to become a Viking and all his friends are there to help and see him off. One problem, he disappears just before launch!

A bit of excitement, a few laughs, a lot of fun and some great illustrations. This one's a winner for any kid.

"What a fun book for young kids! My 5 year old son paid attention to each page, and my 9 year old daughter enjoyed reading all of the funny side plot quotes made by the ants. We can't wait to follow his adventures!" said.

"Another engaging story from the creative mind of Melinda Kinsman. All of the books from the "Top of the Wardrobe Gang" draw the readers in, both young and not so young, alike.

This story of Raggy's grand adventure will capture the attention of every reader with an interesting twist in storytelling technique that presents the adventure from three perspectives, simultaneously. First, we hear and see the story narrated through the memories of the main character, stuffed bunny Raggy (soon to become Ragnar the Viking). Second and at the same time, the reader follows the actual adventure in real imaginary time.

Now, what if someone inside the book, but outside the story were sharing the adventure with you. Readers will enjoy an additional perspective from the comical and often sarcastic musings of a few local ants (the crawley kind), who watch the adventure, safely outside the box, from the reader's side of a window into the story.

Discovering how Ragnar got his name is just the beginning of an enchanting adventure. We enjoyed this newest tale thoroughly and a good time was had by all....well, except for possibly, those ants.

"An excellent and entertaining story! Kids will love it because it's written in comic format and it's jam packed with one adventure after another!" said.
