Stewie BOOM! and Princess Penelope: The Case of the Eweey, Gooey, Gross and Very Stinky Experiment
A food experiment goes terribly wrong, but eventually leads to something very right and green in this second book in the entertaining Stewie Boom series.
Stewie and his sister Penelope decide to experiment with some kitchen products, which include fake chips, washing spray and doggy shampoo. When the experiment goes wrong, the young siblings ditch the eweey, gooey, gross and very stinky result out of the window. But the next morning, mom and dad discover that their grass is brown and their dog is green. Although mom and dad put a hold on the independent experiments, they arent really angry so much as they are shocked by the results of the experiment. Though it failed on one level, it succeeds in showing them that if the ingredients of those products can create that sort of reaction in the grass and dog fur, then perhaps these kitchen products are toxic and its time to go green.
Stevie BOOM! and Princess Penelope is a dynamic story gets to the point quickly with its clean, green, message that provides food for thought but also promotes action. The layout of the alternating narrative and illustrations is visually pleasing with its bright, vivid colors that effectively capture the childrens evocative and entertaining facial expressions. In addition to the glossary at the back of the book, the practical suggestions with simple illustrations make recycling a relatable and almost self-guided concept for children three and older. The checklist, treasure hunt for items and certificate adds another fun factor to going green. In addition to being a lively and clear introduction to recycling and being environmentally friendly, the sweet story touches on positive themes including creativity and a nurturing family.
Stevie BOOM! and Princess Penelope is a cute and inspiring tale with an important message about childrens creativity and being environmentally friendly.
