Smelly Peter: The Great Pea Eater Review

Featured Books for 3+ readers

Peter, who eats only peas, soon turns green and farts incessantly. It makes him very unpopular at home but luckily he is spotted by a space ship who whisk him away to their alien planet where his greenness and farting are so appreciated that he is made king. Introduced to a host of new foods, Peter’s greenness and his farting powers begin to fade so he is swiftly deposed and sent summarily back to earth. And, guess what? Peter develops a passion for another kind of food…Told in rhyming verse, the combination of food faddiness and farting fun will make this irresistible for all those who love Aliens Love Underpants.


Smelly Peter: The Great Pea Eater Synopsis

Young Peter Pod, was a little bit odd: he ate nothing but peas, fresh or tinned, for breakfast and brunch, for dinner and lunch, though he always had terrible wind! Peter is different. He only ever eats peas and they make him green and rather smelly! Then one day he is picked up by a spaceship full of aliens, who whisk him away to make him their king.
