The Adventures of Tomato and Pea Blog Book Tour


It’s cool when someone you know publishes a book.

It’s even cooler when that someone is an eleven-year old boy!


Erik Weibel, the genius behind This Kid Reviews Books, has written a fun, sci-fi adventure book.

When I heard he was putting together a blog book tour, I rushed to nab a place in the line-up.

Erik has impressed all of us in this amazing kid lit community with his dedication, enthusiasm and down-right great writing! He is part of Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Challenge and also participates in Susanna Leonard Hill’s Perfect Picture Book Friday and also takes part (VERY SUCCESSFULLY) in the writing contests she hosts.


The Adventures of Tomato and Pea – Book I: A Bad Idea

Written by Erik Weibel

Based on characters created by Dave Costella

Synopsis from Erik:
For years the evil villain Wintergreen had tried to destroy super crime-stopper, Tomato and his sidekick, Pea, and take over planet Oarg. In a plan gone wrong, Wintergreen traps himself along with his arch-nemesis in a runaway rocket ship that crashes on a strange planet called “EAR-TH”. Now these perennial enemies must learn to work together to survive the dangers on this strange world. Hungry birds, enormous snakes and the giant inhabitants of EAR-TH stand between this brawling bunch of aliens and finding a way home.”

This is just a teaser…you need to buy a copy of the book so that you can find out what happens!

Here is the info you will need to snag a copy or two:

The book is for sale on Amazon (kindle and paperback) and CreateSpace (paperback)

Here is the link to the book on Amazon USA

What a great Christmas gift for any 5 to 10 year-old! I’m giving my copy to my twin 8-year old grandchildren…I know they are going to LOVE it! More than that, I hope they will see Erik as an inspiration…he certainly inspires me!

Congratulations, Erik! Job well-done! I look forward to the further adventures of Tomato and Pea.

    • Most of that energy is probably coming from the jet packs of Erik’s characters, Catherine.:) With all the packing, I don’t have much left! I need to get over and read all the other stops on Erik’s book tour…but by 3am, I just can’t keep my eyes open. Will be relieved when drawers and closets are emtpy. :


    • Hats off to you, Erik! Oh, wait a minute while I find a hat to put on so that I can take it off.:) If I can find one that hasn’t been packed! 🙂
      Congratulations on sticking to your story idea…and following through to see it become a book! That is no small feat!!!!


    • I appreciate you stopping by, Dawn! Yes, Erik deserves much applause (and his family also who support him every step of the way). I’m looking forward to our move and getting settled in so that I can return to visiting my favorite blogs…like yours!!! 🙂


  1. Great to read your post in this wonderful blog tour! If your readers would like a chance to win a copy of Erik’s book, I’m having a giveaway over on my blog. People who comment before Thursday at 12 noon eastern time will be entered in the draw.

    Good luck with the packing and moving!


    • Michelle, I was thrilled to be part of the tour…Erik is an inspiration to all of us!
      We are moving to NH next week…to live with our grandson…the little boy in the header photo…that was taken two falls ago at the pond near his house.:)
