    1 thought on “Poppy and Rye

    1. After reading Poppy for the fifth or sixth time, I wanted to learn more about the characters in Dimwood Forest. This one introduces some eager beavers -eager to banish Ragweed’s family from an area where they live, and of course Poppy finds her way in the middle of things. By the way, she falls in love with Rye, Ragweed’s brother, and at the same time irritates her friend, Ereth, who is, in my opinion, grouchy like a lot of humans that I know. This book is just OK.

    2. If Avi writes it, I will read it. He's a MASTER of children's books. Few people so cleverly weave political allegories, adventure, and do it as he does so that small children AND their parents can enjoy reading them. Book 1 -Ragweed - was about mice vs cats in a very "minorities deserve rights in the face of racism" way. Book 2, Poppy, was a "let my people go from this brainwashed totalitarian regime", and this one is about beavers building a dam and forcing everyone to move out under the guise [...]

    3. My kids and I are continuing to enjoy these stories about Poppy. We're listening to them on tape, so that may be part of the charm. The narrator is doing an excellent job of maintaining terrific voices for the different animals. This makes crotchety Ereth's swearing even funnier ("spider spit" and the like). Ereth is a porcupine, by the way. Like Ragweed and Poppy, Poppy and Rye alludes to greater social and societal issues than simply two mice falling in love and, together with Ereth and Rye's [...]

    4. Just finished reading this to my students. This is the second in the Dimwood Forest Series. However we also read Ragweed, which is sort of like a preqel. Usually I just read three of these Avi books and let my students continue on their own. However they all insisted that I read Ereth's Birthday, #3 in the series next. I'm looking forward to this, as this one I haven't read. They are such well written stories about forest animals engaging in human like activities. I think, at least I hope, that [...]

    5. This is one of my favorite series to read aloud to young school-age children. This one happens to bog down a bit with romantic drama. One of my older kids said, "This is like 'Twilight' with mice." Fortunately, that whole business doesn't last all that long.

    6. Poppy travels to The Brook to deliver the bad news to Ragweed's family. But the family has moved because of Canad, the beaver's, cute condos building project. When Poppy finally tracks the family down, the bad news sends Rye out on a desperate act of bravery and he is captured by Canad and held for ransom. And the ransom demand is for the mouse family to give up their home and move on. Poppy organizes the family to attempt a rescue.

    7. This is listed as #3 on my Perma-Bound edition.I like that some time has passed since the previous book, but the reader can enter this episode easily with the interesting, suspenseful thread of events. I also like how Ereth gradually becomes a more important character. His language is entertaining on its own!

    8. This series is so much fun! My son read "Poppy" for his book group and we've been hooked on following Poppy's journey. Avi's love for nature is so evident in his books. My son has certainly been inspired to think about animals in a different way since reading these books.

    9. So I remember reading this book as a kid. I remember I had just read the book Poppy and I wanted to read more about the Dimwood forest series that she was part of, so naturally I searched for this book in my library. This story takes place after Mr.Ocax was defeated. And of course Poppy she felt that after the tyranny had ended that she should go to her beloved Ragweed's family to not only give them the news of what happened to Ragweed but also to return something of his to them the earring. So [...]

    10. Even though I have not been entirely captivated by this series, I am content to read more, mainly because the books are short and easy to read. I think it's about time I give some props to Brian Floca, the illustrator for this series. His illustrations are delightful and endearing, and sometimes, just when I start to feel indifferent about the story, his illustrations pull me back in. In this installment, Poppy embarks on a mission to find Ragweed's home and tell his parents what she knows about [...]

    11. NB: This review is for POPPY, the first book in the series. MINI MISS ON A MIGHTY MISSIONThis is Avi at his gentle, sweet best--choosing an unassuming deer mouse for his unlikely heroine. Forced by circumstances to come to the aid of her extensive family (not to mention restore the reputation of her pompous father), teenage Poppy uses her natural intelligence to discover the truth about Mr. Ocax and his "protection" racket. No mouse dares move about freely in his territory without the owl's perm [...]

    12. I enjoyed this book very much. The third book in the Poppy Stories, the setting is mostly down by Glitter Creek, on the edge of Dimwood Forest.The mice of Glitter Creek wake up one morning to find the beavers have flooded their home Creek and it is slowly turning into a lake! The beavers are rude and clumsy, and don't care what the mice want. Who will stop this maddens? Poppy the deer mouse begins the journey to Glitter Creek to tell Ragweed's family that Ragweed is dead. She dances with a mysti [...]

    13. I read this book years ago. I don't remember all of it but I do remember liking it. I was probably around the ages 8 to 12. I was an animal book reader when I was younger. I read half of the books in this series and this one was my least favorite. I don't remember much about the characters. But I do remember how the beavers got in and out of their dwellings. Besides that I hardly remember a single thing. I read this book after reading Poppy, and Ragweed. You can imagine how hard a time I had exc [...]

    14. I really love this book in the poppy series because in book 2,of the poppy series (poppy) poppy's fiance"ragweed" was murdered by a Great Horned owl named "MR.OCAX" in the Dimwood Forest.Then, when MR.OCAX would't allow poppy's family to move to a new house , she decided to find out why he would't let them go to the new house.In the end she met a stubburn old porcupine nmed "Ereth". then she killed Mr.Ocax by, stabbing him with one of Ereth's quiils. She also agreed to getting ereth a piece of t [...]

    15. 3.5 starsAhh, teaching kids the wonders of forced development of the land--it was practically beaver eminent domain. "Progress without Pain," but we'll still try to kill you/run you out of town if you don't get out.I can't remember if I had read this in grade school or not--the premise did sound a bit familiar as I was reading it. The series isn't nearly as awesome as Redwall is, but these are certainly just as enjoyable. These are much quicker to read, have a simpler plot, and have more morals [...]

    16. Listened to this as an audiobook in the car with the boys (4&5), and they loved it. Ereth made them burst into giggles every time he started with his ridiculous exclamations (their favorites were "bee boogers!" and "Sticky Roach Toes!" hopefully I remembered those correctly). And since their imaginative play around the house has involved Poppy, Rye, Ragweed, Clover, Valerian, and Thistle, I'm going to go ahead and say that this book made a pretty big impact on them. They loved it, and are re [...]

    17. After Ragweed dies in "Poppy," Poppy knows she must find his family to give them the bad news. So Poppy and her best friend, the porcupine Ereth,leave Dimwood Forest in search of Ragweed's family. When she finally finds them, she learns that beavers have taken over the brook and the mice's home has been destroyed. Rye, Ragweed's younger brother, decides to try and save their home and is captured by the beaver. Now it's up to Poppy to find Rye and help him escape. And she also discovers that she [...]

    18. My niece and I got most of the way through this book, but not completely through. It was just too slow for both of us, it lacked the excitement and adventure of Poppy, and we just never got to the point of really caring about any of the characters. Today we finally decided to give up on Poppy and Rye.We were both very impressed, however, with the scene where Poppy tells Ragweed's parents about his death. That was moving and well written, and when I read that bit out loud to the kids, they both s [...]

    19. These books are great for bullying discussions. In this book, the beaver Castor B. Canad acts like a friend, but really is a horrible bully who speaks in cliches. In the first book, Poppy, it was the owl OchAxe (sp?) that was the bully. LOVE the porcupine Ereth in these books. He's the comic relief who speaks in alliteration. He's also an example of a character who's tough on the outside but really a marshmallow inside - the kind of talk with kids about not judging someone from what you see. In [...]

    20. Book Description:Heartbroken over the death of her fiance, Ragweed, Poppy, a deer mouse, journeys west through the vast Dimwood Forest to bring the sad news to Ragweed's family. But Poppy and her prickly porcupine pal, Ereth, arrive only to discover that beavers have flooded the serene valley where Ragweed lived. Together Poppy and Ragweed's brother Rye brave kidnapping, imprisonment, and a daring rescue to fight the beavers. At the same time, Rye -- who has lived in Ragweed's shadow -- fights t [...]

    21. Another Dimwood Forest Tale to read to Preston - Yeah!!! So far, we love all of the Tales of Dimwood Forest by Avi. He is an awesome writer! I've been reading this series to my ten year old son and I think that I am enjoying it just as much as he is. He loves adventure stories and he loves animals so this series seems to be perfect for him. The only thing that he didn't like in this book was the romance, it was a little too sappy for him. We are looking forward to reading the next book in the se [...]

    22. Poppy and Poppy and Rye are kid's books yes, but I feel like these are like dark disney movies that surprisingly have a lot to offer in terms of the themes of survival, love and loss, romance and family, while still maintaining that talking animal charm. These are mature and realistic feeling novels that aren't as light as something like the Lion King but not as dark as something like Watership Down, but these are more or less a "my first survival novel" type of books.

    23. I listened to the audiobook version of this story and thought it was cute. Like Mossflower, but more about relationships than protecting the homeland or whatever. Normally I don't listen to audiobooks (I feel like they interpret the story for me and I want to be the one doing the interpreting), but we had 36 hours in the car with a 5 year old to handle. The reader was pretty fantastic, too. I don't think I would have liked this book as much if he hadn't been so talented.

    24. The book "Poppy and Rye" by Avi was a good holiday book. It was a good fast read but it wasn't as interesting as the first book one or second. It would have been better if the author had put in more characters because it was a sort of long and slow. The out come was good but it wasn't as interesting as it could have been. I would categorize this book as a easy fast read but not that intriguing.

    25. The book Poppy is about the edge of Dimwood Forest stood an old charred ok where, silhouetted by moon,a great horned owl sat waiting. The owl's name was Mr.ocax, and he looked like death himself. With his percing gaze,he surveyed the lands he called his own, watching for creatures he considerd his subjects. N o one dared to cross the path cause if he saw some one cross the path he would fly afther them. Mr.
