Stewie BOOM! and Princess Penelope: The Case of the Eweey, Gooey, Gross and Very Stinky Experiment
Imagination and messes go hand in hand for Stewie BOOM! and his sister Princess Penelope. In Stewie BOOM! and Princess Penelope: The Case of the Eweey, Gooey, Gross and Very Stinky Experiment, Stewie BOOM! and his sister Princess Penelope love to do experiments with things found around the house. From food to cleaning products, if it can be mixed they will use it. However, one day an experiment quickly goes from fun to gross and to hide it they decide to dump it out the window. When their experiment ends up on the dog, turning it green and on the grass, turning it brown their parents say enough is enough. When their older brother, Zoom, shows their mom a website about the harmful chemicals in food and cleaners it gives Stewie an idea. He tells his parents they should go through everything in their house and get rid of the yucky stuff. The parents like the idea and the family learns about going green, which is a lot harder than Stewie thought. Can he stick to their plan and go green with the family? More importantly, is this the end of his and Princess Penelope’s experiments?
Stewie BOOM! and Princess Penelope: The Case of the Eweey, Gooey, Gross and Very Stinky Experiment written by Christine Bronstein and illustrated by Karen L. Young is an enjoyable story that teaches a great lesson about the harmful things that can be found in everyday items and how to go green to avoid them. The illustrations are fun and go along well with the story. What makes this book unique is that it is not only a fun story book to read at home but that it is also a great teaching tool that can be used at home or in the classroom. With a glossary of terms, explanations about recycling, composting, and other ways to go green and fun ways to check yourself to see how green you are this book has many uses. There are even fun experiments included that young children will enjoy (with parent supervision of course). Overall, a great book with a great message.
