I received an advance copy of The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot for my honest review.
Every night I went to close Rockford T. Honeypot after reading out loud, the kids would cry “Just one more chapter Mom! Please?”
About The Adventures of Rockford T. Honeypot
The story opens in Green Hut Market 39. Registers are down, and customers are angsty to get their groceries and get home.
That is until wealthy businessman, Rockford T. Honeypot, arrives on scene and mingles with the non-VIP patrons. He begins to tell his origin story, what made him who he is, and eventually where he’s been for the last few years.
The crowds gather, and no one is worried about the rest of their day as we go back in time to young Rockford, his shy childhood filled with bullies and a harsh father. With enough faith from his mother though, he sets off on adventure that will set his life in motion for success.

I read Rockford T. Honeypot for our family book club read aloud in July. When we finish a family book, the next most logical thing to do is have a party! We thought about the book, and while we definitely would have tried roasting some nuts (Rockford’s tool to success), we have a nut allergy in the home.
So we thought, and decided we’d like to celebrate someone from the book that meant a lot to Rockford – his wife Jewel. In one part of the book, Rockford wants to give his wife a gift, and after struggling to come up with something, decides to buy her lemon everything since she loves lemons.
Obviously, lemons became the centerpiece of our party. I encouraged the kids to all come up with something lemon related – and while I thought maybe we’d get some kind of craft in there, we ended up with a whole lot of lemon foods to eat.
We enjoyed the following:
Lemonade (the powdered kind)
