Rukky’s Review:

The title of this book is “Burly and Grum and the Secret City.”  This story is very interesting because of the unusual friendship between Max the human, Burly the bear, and grum the unusual animal.

The animals wanted to show their friend Max a secret city where humans once lived and the treasures that were left behind.  Unfortunately they met a greedy human hunter on the way who wanted to take the unusual animal to the city for his selfish gains and the treasures from the secret city.

The hunter’s assistant Tyre was a good man.  The animals captured captain Qtee the hunter and Max too Tyre the hunters assistant.  Their friend the angel told them to release the hunter because he can’t find his way out of the forest.

The animals, Max, and their new friend Tyre had a nice time eating cakes and tea that was given to them by Mike.


I would recommend this book to another reader because the characters were very loveable and relatable.  They seem like people I wouldn’t mind being friends with in real life.  This is a great story and should be read by anyone who likes a humors story.
