Designed For Children
Written For Everyone
The Green Ember is a great story written well. Rabbits are the heroes, wolves and hawks the villains.
The story is full of intrigue, adventure, action, mystery, surprise and struggle, but with a good mix of humor and playfulness. Written for children but in a way adults will enjoy.
The characters (the good guys) depict personal growth, sacrifice, humility, loyalty, trust, wisdom and dedication. The bad guys do what we expect bad guys to do. The story encourages us to visualize, believe in and work toward a future we cannot see.
Problems are created and resolved. Empathy is felt for those being wronged and disgust for those causing it. You’ll easily recognize and identify with the characters: the strong, the weak, the frustrated and the struggling.

A few phrases I loved:
- “You can choose what you believe, but you can’t change what’s true.”
- “This is a place where people make and are made.”
- “You cannot kill an idea. You cannot murder a dream.”
And many more.
My favorite: “Like a waterfall letting a tear drop put out a fire.”
If you love ideas expressed concisely. If you enjoy scenes described interestingly. If you enjoy “feeling” the pain and anxiety over what might happen next, you’ll enjoy the green ember.
It’s a good book to read and for reading to others.
Thanks to S. D. Smith for writing and sharing such a great story.
