It's a week of winners and reviews around here! I'm behind on what I've read and what I want to recommend to the world. And of course I'll be announcing winners for both contests I currently have running. And I'll probably put up a new contest, too. Oh, what to give away next????
Up today is a darling chapter book aimed at kids who appreciate the frustrations life throws at them on a daily basis.
THE MIS-ADVENTURES OF PHILLIP ISAAC PENN by Donna Peterson (Cedar Fort Books, June 8, 2011)
PIP (PHILLIP ISAAC PENN) is a gem of a book that is totally worth the read. It's aimed at younger kids (really, 1st grade and up), boys and girls, but any adult who interacts with kids on a regular basis is sure to see the fun and humor in this one.
Everybody calls Phillip Isaac Penn, Pip. And usually they yell it at the top of their lungs. Sure he might forget to close the classroom mice's cage door, or leave his mother's hair dryer in bathtub (hey, it's unplugged), and he might even make it so that Liar Lizzy gets caught, but that doesn't make him bad. It's just not easy being a kid.
