"THE RUMPLINGS IS A WONDERFULLY ORIGINAL CHILDREN’S FICTION STORY (...)"
ILLUSTRATED SHORT STORY OF FRIENDSHIP AND ADVENTURE
Rocket and Shaman Ruffalo worry where their fellow Rumplings are disappearing to, and start to question their way of life. Even little Jodie, begins to wonder if the Rumplings of the House of Food and Flavour are really great? Shaman Ruffalo has a vision that this is a sign that a catastrophe is bound to happen. Together with Rocket they decide to investigate what is going on before it is too late. Is it too late to save their home, Káer?
Meet the characters
Rocket is the hero of the story. His ambitions are simple; he wishes that his fellow Rumplings would appreciate the good fortunes they’ve been blessed with, and that they live with according consideration. His passion for the Rumpling way of life transpires in every fibre of his being. Also, he loves his sister very much, and having lost his parents, he feels responsible for her. There is nothing he won’t do to keep her safe.
Rocket’s younger sister is your typical aloof Rumpling. Obsessed with Foodology and Alchemy, she spends all her time reading alchemy textbooks, and experimenting with food at home. Even though at times Rocket worries about her “living in a different world”, he’s very happy to eat the results of her experiments (most of the time, at least).
Karina is the head alchemist of Káer. A slightly shy Rumpling, Karina doesn’t always say what she feels, but she always stays close to those she truly cares about. Like Rocket, she is also a follower of the House of Food and Flavour, and does what she can to live by their values of humbleness, perseverance and craftsmanship.
As the Head Shaman of the House of Food and Flavour, Ruffalo lives with a higher purpose; to guide his fellow Rumplings to a place of true appreciation for life. He is a true believer in the ways of his ancestors, and wishes nothing but happiness to all his fellow Rumplings. He is fortunate to be blessed with the gift to interpret the thunder, but his followers don’t always take him seriously. They fear the tidings the thunder might bring, and prefer denial to reality.
