Readers Favorite Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys

This is a cute “moral” story, February 18, 2011No More Whining!!!


This review is from: Peter and the Whimper-Whineys (Paperback)

This book is about a Rabbit named Peter. He whines and cries especially when he doesn’t get his way. Peter is always complaining and whining when he thinks someone got more of something than he got.

When he gets too whiney, his mother always tells him to go take a nap or play with his toys. But one night Peter’s mother gets very upset with his whining and sends him to his room. All of a sudden Peter finds himself in the woods and meets some little men who whine and cry like he does! What happens when he sees how they act up?

This is a cute “moral” story. It is written so younger children would enjoy and relate to it. It is very well illustrated.

Midwest Book Review for Peter and the Whimper-Whineys by Sherrill S. Cannon

No More Whining!!!Today I discovered that Peter and the Whimper-Whineys has also been reviewed by Midwest Book Review, with the following review:  “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a versed, color illustrated children’s story about a very unpopular small rabbit named Peter who only knows how to whine. Because Peter’s mother tires of his whining, she warns him about going to live with the Whimper-Whineys, a rude group of unpleasant beings. So Peter dreams of going deep into the dark woods to find these Whimper-Whineys and see just what is so disagreeable about them. His ensuing adventures reflect back to him just how unpleasant and sour the effect of whimpering and whining can be on all who are around it. Eventually, Peter finds his way back to his own little bed, awakening to a golden, sunshine-filled day. Do you think Peter has learned his lesson? “Peter and the Whimper-Whineys” is a wonderful fable for harassed parents of fretful toddlers who only need a tweak and a joke to turn their frowns upside down.”
