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.”

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.
