It's not easy being Phillip Isaac Penn. First, everyone calls him Pip, because of his initials, and even though he doesn't really like it, it's a name that's stuck. Secondly, everyone tends to call him Pip really loudly - and usually because they're upset with him. He gets blamed for everything that goes wrong. Sure, sometimes he makes mistakes and uses other people's things without asking, but that doesn't mean he's a bad person! Follow him as he tries to get through a week in one piece.
I think that Pip and Kylie Jean would get along great. They're both enthusiastic kids with a lot of energy who have families that love them (even if Pip's sometimes get exasperated with him). I could see this being a big hit with parents who have a child who reminds them of Pip...as well as kids who feel like they're always being blamed for everything.

I read a copy through NetGalley but it's out in stores now (and published by Cedar Fort).
