I work in a bookstore and got a supply of this book in the other day. I'm not a peeps person but figured I had better give it a fair look -- it's hilarious! I shared it with peeps-passionate friends at work and two immediately said, "I want one!" A two page spread shows pictures of peeps with their names below them -- most look exactly alike and that's what is so funny. Peeps homecoming, homeschooled peeps . . .it goes on and on. The front cover has peeps that feel sugary. It's just a goofy, fun book and should appeal to anyone, especially the peeps fanatics.

To be honest, I had never heard of Peeps before. I was in the book store and the insanely colorful cover got my attention. So I bought a copy and took it home. It was great. Very funny with a bit of an edge. Who knows, maybe I'll even buy some Peeps to eat. Although it would feel a bit like canabalism now. I recommend this book to everyone.

I've always ragged on my sister for her Eastertime peep-cravings as I've never enjoyed the candy myself (although they are really cute). So I had to buy her this witty, wacky, sweet book.

Not only is it full of hilarious pictures (like a rendering of the painting "The Scream" with a yellow peep doing the screaming) but it has plenty of text to keep you engaged with the book for a while. Although perusing the book for its photos is a riot in itself. Also, there are several storylines--the peeps' field trip to the museum, Father peep having to pull himself together for work after slightly melting in his cup of coffee, and of course the mystery at the center of the book--so you always wonder what's on the next page.

One of my faves is a pictures of two peeps with a (human-sized) yearbook. One of them says something like, "I love old yearbooks." The other replies, "Dang, how do we open it?"

Why is this so funny? I don't know, it just is!

PEEPS: A CANDY-COATED TALE is by far the most original, zany Easter tale of 2006. As such, it deserves ongoing recommendation and mention for any fan (or not!) of the marshmallow candy, whether child or adult. A prominent Peepsville family has gone missing and the Peeps are up in arms. Photos of the candy peeps are embellished with hats, glasses and more as the denizens of Peepsville are presented with character embellishments, plots and subplots. The perfect Easter gift - and perfect for any engaged by Peeps candies. One of the most creative top picks of the Easter holiday season.

Format: Hardcover
From even the front cover, you can tell this is a hilarious book. The short newspaper articles and art projects make the book an easy read. The authors have certainly outdone themselves with their creativity and use of pop culture. There's an entire yearbook that features Peeps in a high school environment-- participating in sports, get voted for Homecoming's Royal Court, and much more. Another one of my favorite parts is the Peeple weekly magazine. This book is a fun read, but also has the capability of pulling in some reluctant readers. Check it out, and maybe it will be in someone's Easter basket soon!

My 7 year old daughter is in love with her Peep. I was so excited to get this for her. Until she brought it to me and showed me the word ASS in the" Runyon Peep Jones" story. I understand he is suppose to be a cowboy, but do they really need to add that in to what seems clearly to me a kids book. I'm disappointed for this reason!
