Runt and MumbleRunt and Mumble – A Tale of Love and War


In Runt and Mumble: A Tale of Love and War, rats and mice take on human characteristics.  They end up having the same dilemmas, but with an emotional, spiritual and political undertone.

Runt’s gentle demeanor and small stature make him an easy target for abuse by other rats in the horde.  Mumble, on the other hand, is an overgrown mouse whose slowness and large girth make her the laughingstock of her colony.  A chance meeting between the two outcasts creates an unlikely friendship, as well as the chance for a new life of their own.

Although rejected by their own societies, Runt and Mumbles relationship sparks a war between rats and mice as they fight for ultimate control over food and territory.  With their lives in danger and their freedom slipping away, Runt and Mumble find themselves in a worse situation than when they first met, and it seems that nothing short of a miracle could help them now.

    I read the runt and mumble book. Its cool. Its got stuff in it about we don’t have to accept crap from others etc. And love and loyalty gets you to the plateau. We just need to seek inner freedom from wordly crap.

    I read it to. It taught me to cross” the water of life” We can have a better life if we want one. I thought it was good how Runt and Mumble finaly ended up together. Everytime they relapsed and went back to their old lives things were worse for them. But crossing over got them saved from all their past torments. Its got subliminal messages in it, they’re good lessons.

    Yes! its a good story with messages. We don’t have to be persecuted–there is an exit if we need it. We just need to be loyal to the goodness that is within us, then we get saved from torment. I liked the names of all of them, it explained their personalities. Because the trio were raised to be nasty and given nasty names by their leader they followed that path. If we treat our kids well, they will grow to be good adults, not nasty like the troublesome trio.
