A Runtamuffin Tale is a charming new children’s book (ages 6-12) that follows the life on the farm of Runtamuffin — or Runti — a tiny chicken with a big personality. Runti becomes the first chicken brave enough to form a bond with one of the farm’s largest inhabitants, a beautiful horse named Mariett.
All the animals on the farm soon learn that differences in size and appearance are not important. The story, subtly interweaves life lessons on sharing, believing in yourself, love, friendship, anti-bullying and mutual respect.
The 57-page large format book is wonderfully illustrated by Marc Beauregard and would make a nice addition to the family’s home or elementary school library.
Author Melissa Taylor currently lives, owns and runs a farm with her husband in South Florida with 14 chickens, 34 horses, 5 dogs and a cockatiel.
