Overview

Children of all ages will delight in the Wampetters—pudgy orange creatures who like nothing better than telling jokes, taking mudbaths, and eating. Eloise and Gartrude Tub are cheerfully playing in the mud when a sleek silver spaceship drops out of the red sky. The young Wampetters are enthralled by the elegant humans who emerge. So few humans come to this sleepy planet, far from the galactic mainstream, and the Smith family seems so friendly. The girls do not realize it, but they and their parents are about to embark on the greatest adventure of their lives. They must save planet Wampetter from a terrible fate: becoming the galaxy's first theme planet. While kids are laughing they are also learning. This amusing read-aloud book for families helps kids decide what is really important, and it helps them realize that kids can make a difference and that a family working together can accomplish great things.

The Tub family saves their planet from being destroyed by intergalactic tourism while recognizing that they have much to offer and to learn from visitors.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The basic premise of this book is great; a family tries to save their planet from being overtaken by money and power hungry developers, and in doing so, learns a lot from the strangers. Planet Wampetter is a rather backward place to those of us from Earth. One example of this is that Wampetters are incredibly insulted if a person bathes before seeing them; the dirtier they are, the happier they are! But the messages of respecting those who are different than you, sincerity and friendship get lost in the extremely convoluted storyline. This is a strange book that offers little to the reader. The author is a former newspaper reporter and trial lawyer; more recently a teacher, parent and author, who lives with his family in Los Angles, California. He has written a novel and continues to write fiction for his children and their friends. 1995, Perspective Publishing,
