Smelly Peter the Great Pea Eater is a wonderful rhyming adventure for kids and it even has aliens.
Peter Pod loves to eat peas. He eats them for breakfast, lunch and dinner too! Of course, they do make him toot quite a bit. One morning he wakes of the color of the peas he loves so much. He thinks its cool and can't wait to show the kids at school. Unfortunately his classmates don't feel the same way about his green disposition or his tooty habits.

This is a hilarious rhyming story of a little boy called Peter, who only eats peas. He is outcast from his school friends because he is always farting and one day turns green. Along comes an alien spaceship and they take peter to their home planet where he becomes the king of the planet. When I read this to my year 1 class, they erupted in laughter when I mimicked the noises in the book, the story is rhyming and has good tempo and pace which makes it even more enjoyable for the children.

This story is about Peter who begins the book only eating peas, and ends it only wanting to eat baked beans. It is a silly story for children of about 3 or 4 years old up to about 7 or 8 (at a push). Perhaps aimed slightly more at boys than girls though any child who enjoys farting or fart jokes will get something out of this. It is written in rhyme throughout and the language used would not be too difficult for a 7 or 8 year old. If your child is younger than this it would probably require you ...more

Peter ate a lot of one type of food and changed to that color. He was then bullied. Next some aliens came and took him to space where they made him king. However, he ended up changing back so they took away his crown. He was glad to go home, because he missed his family. Now he wants backed beans.
After reading this book to my class, I would then ask them to tell me what they think will happen next if the story were to keep going.

Peter loves peas and eats them for every meal. Peas make him toot and they also make him green! People at his school make fun of him but the aliens love his green color and make him king! This book is great for kids and the tooting and farting will make them laugh a lot. It's good for retellings and read aloud time.
Not my favorite, but I can see kids loving the story. Don't all kids like farts? It's has rhyming text. I wouldn't want to read it aloud to a whole class, but I think it's a good addition to the classroom library by adding humor. This book might just capture a child's interest. Peas, aliens, and farts.

Not my kind of humor but, the rhyming was good. Not a book I would read aloud to a group of children.

This is a cute book about a boy who loves peas so much he turns green. First and second graders would love this book. Most would think it's hilarious. Good book for predicting.
