Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book is a children’s animal picture book written by Sherrill S. Cannon and illustrated by Kalpart. Whatever was wrong with Peter? The little rabbit never stopped whining and complaining, and his mom was just about fed up with him. She was at her wits’ end after hearing him moan and whinge from the time he woke up until he went to sleep at night. Finally, she told him the story about the Whimper-Whineys. They were strange old creatures who made noises just like him — endlessly whining, complaining, and crying. She thought they might be tempted to take Peter with him to their distant home, where he could cry and moan to his heart’s content…
Sherrill S. Cannon’s animal fable for children, Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book, is based upon a story that her mother told to her, and several generations of children after her, as well as to her second-grade classes. I’ve no doubt most of us have had the misfortune of having a whimper-whiney like Peter in our lives, and the fiction that there’s a far-off land where they can all whine and cry by themselves is a tempting one indeed. Cannon’s rhymed version of the story is smooth and flowing, and Kalpart’s images of those Whimper-Whineys crying a pond into existence are hilarious. I love the interactive aspect of this book as each of the illustrations is designed to be colored by the reader. The panels are marvelous, especially the one where Peter is stomping his feet on his chair. The look on his sister’s face is priceless. Peter and the Whimper-Whineys Coloring Book may get whiners to pause and reflect a bit, and it’s sure to please those who enjoy coloring books. It’s highly recommended.
I’d also love to see any artistic endeavors your children might create… and will post any that you care to share and are sent to me: email@example.com
