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 (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.
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.
