The Nine Lives of Pinrut the Turnip Boy is a fun book for kids between the 3rd and 6th grades.
One summer's evening, a turnip just up and left. He'd had enough of being just another turnip in just another row of turnips in just another field of turnips. He pulled himself from the ground, turned upside down, and took off on his leafy stalks.
"Hey, you can't do that!" cried the other turnips.
"Watch me," said the turnip.
And watch him we will, through all nine lives: In America, Canada, China, New Zealand, New Guinea, Mars and Wobbles. Naturally, he has many adventures along the way, but his skills and savvy, indeed, his sheer existence, come to the attention of Meffi Stoffolees, a nefarious character.
The Nine Lives of Pinrut the Turnip Boy is suitable for children from grades 3rd to 6th.
