Word travels quickly through a peaceful village when a hungry beast is spotted in the hills. Some say he has ears that can hear a potential meal from a mile away! Others declare that his stink is enough to kill you with just one whiff! Still others report that his snout is stronger than a vacuum cleaner! The threat compels friends to warn one another and in humorous fashion turn hearsay into an increasingly inaccurate rumor. Uncertainty abounds, but by the time the villagers are safely gathered together out of harm's reach, one thing is for sure readers young and old will be charmed by The Rumor!

Review: The Rumor

User Review  - Beth Wood - Goodreads

This book would be a great way to discuss what rumors are, and how they are started. Definitely for younger elementary-aged kids. The surprise ending made me grin, and would be great for discussing. Read full review
