I really enjoyed reading Spud's First Day Surprise (Chompy and the Munchy Bunchvolume three) by Nancy Beaule. The book is very well written and descriptive.The story has many funny parts. The characters are likeable, because the gourdshelp to cheer Spud up, and Spud kept the rain away from the gourds. The bookteaches that sometimes people are teased because they're different, but itdoesn't mean they should be bullied. It also teaches that often bullying isbased on appearance. The book is very relatable, because many young readershave had to go to a new school, just like Spud. The illustrations by LaurenGoldstein are very well done, and depict each scene vividly. The pictures are alsovery colorful. Children will enjoy reading this book. I would definitelyrecommend this book to all young readers.

It's Spud's first day at a new school and nothing is going right. Feeling like a laughing stock, he runs off into the woods - and accidentally becomes a hero! Meanwhile, Chompy uses his super-powered Chompy Juice to good effect.
As ever, Candybar is the troublemaker, while Chompy saves the day. And, once again, there is some questionable behavior, as Spud climbs a ladder to peek through a window. Still, we all know what Goldilocks did! I'm sure the kids will enjoy the "butt" references! At the same time, they'll learn that it's okay to be different and that sometimes being different is a good thing.
A cute story for children ages 3 and up.

The series focuses on Chompy, a nervous carrot who finds a formula for super-powered eyesight called Chompy Juice, which is made from carrots. Children love re-enacting the eye-popping Chompy Juice segment, and parents appreciate the underlying nutritional messages hidden inside. The books are geared toward 4 - 9 year olds.

Besides cooking, Nancy loves nature (anything outdoors!), reading and most of all spending time with her grandchildren.
