Book Tour: Review & Giveaway of The Misadventures of P.I.P. by Donna Peterson

Welcome to the Virtual Blog Tour for The Misadventures of Phillip Isaac Penn. I have a review and giveaway for this wonderful children's book. 

Title:The Misadventures of P.I.P.
Author:Donna Peterson
Publisher:Cedar Ford
Imprint:Bonneville Books
Pub. Date:06/08/2011

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 book was adorable. It follows a week in the life of Phillip Isaac Pen, or Pip. He's your typical young boy, always getting into trouble. Sometimes he's innocent, sometimes he's not. He is always fun though. Each chapter begins a day, often with Pip already getting into trouble before the day begins. Each chapter also highlights a particular person causing Pip trouble.

I had fun reading this, remembering what it was like to grow up with brothers. Pip may get into trouble, but he always means well. I like that Pip readily acknowledged what he might have been able to do differently in each situation. He understood that even with good intentions, some things should not be done. The illustrations were so cute. This will be a great book for younger children who are just starting chapter books. It even includes questions at the end for some great discussion with your kids! Overall, it was a very enjoyable children's book.

What a fun book! Sometimes I felt sorry for Pip, but it was great to see how many lessons he learned in a week!
