          If it wasn’t for bad luck Phillip Isaac Penn would have none. In the Misadventures of Phillip Isaac Pen by Donna L. Peterson, Phillip, affectionately known as PIP, just can’t seem to catch a break.
          If you he isn’t getting in trouble in school for cheating on tests, he’s getting in trouble at home for putting the hairdryer in the tub. Now PIP really is a great kid, however, mischief and circumstance just happens to meet him at every corner.  
          All is not lost. At the end of each chapter re-evaluates each situation and learns from them. After all, it’s not easy being a kid.

          I enjoyed The Misadventures of Phillip Isaac Penn and think children from ages 8-12 will also enjoy it. I’d like to see Donna L. Peterson turn this book into a series of books. I even see this book in schools. Kudos to Ms. Peterson!
