BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW OF THE MISADVENTURES OF PHILLIP ISAAC PENN BY D. PETERSON.



I want to welcome Donna L Peterson to Books R Us. Donna is presently touring the blogosphere with her book, The Misadventures of Phillip Isaac Penn.

The Mis-Adventures of Phillip Isaac Penn 
The Mis-Adventures of Phillip Isaac Penn (Pip), is always finding himself trying to get out of trouble. He is just a kid that may have forgotten to close the door to the classroom mice's cage door, leave his mother's hairdryer in the bath tub ( It is unplugged he explains), and helps to catch a liar. He is always being yelled at by adults for things that are not so bad. It is not easy being a kid and try to be good all week.



About the Author-

Donna Peterson has enjoyed writing stories and poetry since the second grade. She has been published four times in the Idaho Magazine; wrote a weekly humor column, "Kaleidoscope," for the Three Rivers Chronicle; and she continues to write short stories for the children at Park Intermediate School, where she has been employed for the past twelve years. Two years ago, Donna took a children's literature class, which inspired her to finally publish her own stories.

Donna lives in Weiser, Idaho, with her husband, Brad, and her three-legged cat, Sam. Her son, Erik and his lovely wife, Shawna, live in Murray, Utah. Her other son, David, will be attending college in Japan next fall.

My Thoughts-

Each chapter was another day in Pip's life and he always seems to be yelled at by his family, teacher or his sister. I can remember when I was a kid,(I am only 16 now) and I was getting in trouble for stupid things that I did, so I can relate to Pip and all of his antics. The illustrations were great and the book is definitely geared toward the younger reader. It is short enough to keep a kids attention and would be a great book to be used in the classroom to teach kids what not to do and why. Hey, Don't we all make mistakes in life. I do.
