Have you read Rufus M? ... Where is he going? Why is there a book on his head? What kind of bike is that? Some great questions to ask before starting this book adventure..... And then, when you get to meet Rufus Moffat...well, you haven't quite met anyone like him. He gets things done, but he does them in his own way. When he wants to check out a library book, he teaches himself to write even though he doesn't yet know how to read.
He plants some very special "Rufus beans" that actually grow...despite his digging them up every day to check on them.
And Rufus has friends that other people don't even know exist! He discovers the only invisible piano player in town, has his own personal flying horse for a day, and tours the town with the Cardboard Boy, his dearest friend-and enemy.
Rufus isn't just the youngest Moffat, he's also the cleverest, the funniest, and the most unforgettable book character.
