As a young chipmunk, shy, bookish Rockford T. Honeypot had dreams of thrilling adventures across the forest. However, timid of danger and germs, his only adventures were found in books and his imagination. Until one day, he sets off on a legendary journey beyond his wildest dreams!
Before becoming the most successful animal in the vast Tropland Forest, bookish Rockford’s early years were marked by his difficulties to fit in.
While the young Rockford is timid of danger and germs, he’s fiercely desperate to grow up to “change the forest” like his literary idol and hero, Captain James T. Rockford.
Young Rockford sets off on an adventure that takes him to places he couldn’t have imagined in his wildest dreams—from the fast-paced kitchen of a city restaurant, to the mysterious mountain sanctuary of a cloister of warrior monks waiting for a legendary chipmunk to fulfill their prophecy.
Along the way, he also meets a colorful assortment of characters and starts a family of his own.
