Poor PIP just can not catch a break in life! Author Donna Peterson describes his antics in a chapter for each day of the week. Every morning he wakes up with someone calling his name and as the hours go by he winds up in all kinds of trouble with his teachers, classmates and at home. This enchanting read for first graders and up addresses cheating, bullying and respect for other people's property. It shows how adults need to take the time to actually figure out what is going on before jumping to conclusions. Told in formulaic, predictable chapters it's a short book at 96 pages that is recommended for all. Overall a fun summer choice for a middle grade early reader. It's a great one to read aloud because of the repetition and beautiful illustrations. Thumbs up from Fire and Ice!
