Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—Four bored children visit a man selling watermelon slices from his truck, dig into them, and soon begin slurping and spitting, leading the way for the rest of the town to follow suit. When the mayor appears and it seems the game is off, she surprises everyone and ups the ante—by throwing pies! The rhyming verse is easy to read aloud, and Manders's cartoon depictions of the townspeople provide just the right sense of fun. Though this silly story depends a little too heavily on one repetitive action to move the plot along, it can be used to supplement summer-story collections. Pair it with Kathi Appelt's Watermelon Day (Holt, 1996) and Lisa Moser's Watermelon Wishes (Clarion, 2006) for a juicy hot-weather treat.—Lisa Egly Lehmuller, St. Patrick's Catholic School, Charlotte, NC

Review

This slapstick farce bounces along in rollicking rhyme...Light as a pie and sweet as melon. -- Kirkus

Format: Hardcover
Jackie French Koller's PETER SPIT A SEED AT SUE enjoys oversized, fun drawings by John Manders as it tells of four friends who begin a watermelon seed-spitting adventure involving everyone in town - until the mayor puts a stop to it. Read-aloud text and hilarious drawings will reach ages 3 and older with a zany story line.

Good overall book to add to your classroom library. Good read-aloud for classroom use. Pictures are full of detail. Children are able to see the pictures and comprehend what the story is about.
