Book review: Ragtag by Karl Wolf-Morgenlander.
Ragtag is a fun-loving swallow who does what he can to avoid responsibility. But when the Talon Empire, a group of predator birds, invade his hometown of Boston, Ragtag must encourage the Feathered Alliance to action. Will Ragtag be able to put his plan into action to save the day? Or are the city birds doomed to live a life of slavery and fear under the raptors?
Why I picked it up: The cover looked really interesting – an angry looking blue-colored bird is dive-bombing the cover.
Why I finished it: The story was really interesting, the pacing was perfect, and I cared about the characters.
I’d give it to: Fans of the Redwall series, tweens who want to read about an imperfect hero they can relate to, animal-lovers.
