Set between 1964 and 1977 it tells the tale of a young vole named Joshua Templeton who is in the care of English Woodland Orphanages and decides to write a diary because he has no one to talk to. His cheery disposition and positive manner carry him through the dark years of The Stoat Rebellion.
After being befriended by a paratrooper from the Woodland Central Government Army, Joshua’s life takes twists and turns that would be unimaginable for him before. Joshua’s diary tells of happiness, sadness, and a society fighting to maintain its own existence. The theme of surviving bullying is dealt with strongly.
The Diary of Joshua Templeton is for children from 8 to 12 years old. If you have read The Stoat Rebellion and liked it then this is the book for your kids. Even if you don’t have any kids around its still a good read.
