The Misadventures of PIP blog tour stops here

The Mis-Adventures of Phillip Isaac PennIt's not easy being a kid and The Mis-Adventures of Phillip Isaac Penn by Donna L. Peterson is the perfect book to remind young readers of just that fact.

Pip, whose real name is Phillip Isaac Penn, feels that the world is against him as he struggles to deal with angry parents, a bossy older sister, a frazzled teacher, and memorable characters such as Bully Bart, Cheater Chaz, Know-It-All Nell, Liar Lizzy, Stealer Steffan, Conman Cody, and Tattle-Tale Tess. Every day of the week brings another challenge that Pip handles in his own endearing way. Yet, no matter how hard he tries, he realizes that it’s just not easy being a kid.

This is one appealing chapter book and a fun read for all ages. Young readers will relate to Pip right away, and will feel for him as he has to deal with the usual stereotype of characters. You know the ones--bully, smarty-pants, rat fink, and more. Just as I'm sure many tweens are trying to make sense out of what transpires through their day, the same goes for Pip--making this one book readers will truly enjoy.
