A bit of wonder with a family curse. What sweet story with a twist and family secret. The artwork was great which brought the story to life adding that little touch to pull you into it. I definitely think your kids will enjoy reading it and seeing the art. The language is simple and straight with a life lesson included.

*I received an ARC copy for an honest review.*

This is a really cute book with a very important message at its core. I’d give it a 3.5 in some areas, but am happy to rate it a 4.0 overall.

While the story concept is intriguing, I’m not sure young readers will grasp the nuances of all that’s happening. The book appears to be formatted like a *chapter book, but it’s not. It’s more of a picture book; oh, and how cute are these pictures.

Poor Gregory Green eats a bowl of his favorite soup (which already garners him a bit of teasing) and then late

With a little silliness and a humor, this book takes a fun dive into the serious topic of bullying.

Gregory Green loves his mother's pea soup, but the kids at school claim it looks like icky bug goo. When he goes out for recess, everyone shuns him and, soon, he finds out why. Gregory Green has turned green from head to toe, and the kids at school find it hilarious.

With a format which is a cross between a picture book and a chapter book, this makes a lovely read-aloud or, perhaps, a nice story for

This is one cute story and the illustrations are wonderful. Gregory Green's problem is that he loves his mom's pea soup. When he eats it at school, the kids single Gregory out and make fun of his skin color. Unfortunately, this is how he learns a family secret. His Grandpa turned green when he ate too much pea soup, too. Luckily, Gregory has some unexpected protectors come to his rescue.

This is an appropriate story for young, primary-school age children. There's a lesson about having compassion

Gregory Green is excited to find a thermos of green pea soup in his thermos. Unlike most kids, he loves his mother’s homemade pea soup. After lunch on the playground, his friends begin making fun of him. Gregory has turned green! Gregory is feeling bad when an unexpected buddy comes to his rescue to end the bullying.

This book contains elements of fantasy, a family curse, a lesson about bullying, and strong family bonds. The layout is more like a chapter book but there are some multicultural illu

The children’s picture book, Pea Soup Disaster, A Gregory Green Adventure, by Elaine Kaye, deals with the serious subject of bullying in grade school. It shows the young reader how easy it is for someone to be bullied. Even more important, Pea Soup Disaster shows the difference one true friend—no matter how unlikely—can make when he decides to do what’s right and stand by a person who is being bullied.

Pea Soup Disaster, A Gregory Green Adventure, by Elaine Kaye, is a fun picture book to read wi

Pea Soup Disaster is a cute story about bullying. Gregory Green eats too much pea soup and turns green. Some of his classmates make fun of him which of course makes him sad. I read this story to a 6-year-old and a 2-and-a-half-year-old, both children were engaged and loved the pictures. It’s never too early to broach the subject of bullying with kids and this book is a great way to do it. Sammy’s secret is very cute as well and I know I look forward to reading more stories about Gregory and his ...more

This children’s book is suitable for kids of all ages and adults as there is an excellent, topical message about bullying behind a fun, amusing story, illustrated by Danyelayers. Bullying seems to be getting worse, so Elaine Kaye’s book has to be almost-required reading - if only to start the debate. It’s a quick read and one I look forward to reading my step-great-grand-kids – and I look forward to more adventures of Gregory Green.

The fifth star awaits the kids' reactions.
