Runt Farm - Under New Management
by Seattle Author Amanda Lorenzo

“The Runt Farm books are filled with hope and humor, showing children a family of characters who don't "match" but who take each other into their hearts and make a fine life together. The stories are a good counterbalance to the idea that there are only limited templates dictating who we can love and take care of.”

Runt Farm is a place where all animals are welcome, even weasels (as long as they don’t eat mice).

About the Runt Farm Series

Published by BooktiMookti Press, the Runt Farm books are a series of illustrated middle readers for ages 6 – 10 that feature a non-traditional family of animals. The story begins with a couple of orphans who adopt each other:  a young, tough-guy cat and his duckling sidekick who take over an old abandoned barn. Two extra-smart Mom and Pop mice named Tooth and Cletus soon arrive, having recently escaped from the evil NAARF laboratory. In Book 2, a brave, bossy bunny and a squirrel with an impeccable flair join the family ranks. The mice engage in delightful, vocabulary-building banter as they seek to provide stability and safety for their adopted multi-species brood. Strange inventions emerge from Cletus’ workshop as the animals pull together in rescues and close calls involving wily weasels and nefarious NAARFers, giving readers a good look at a healthy example of “found family.” Adoptive, foster, and other families celebrating diversity will appreciate how this close-knit group gets through tough times, solves their differences, encourages the underdog, and grows ever closer with each new adventure.


In this first book of the Runt Farm series, Farmer Brunt’s truck zooms away forever. while tough-guy Kitten hides in the barn loft, delighted to have the place all to himself.
