From the Publisher
Meet the Silliest, Warmest Know-It-All™, Mrs. Pinkelmeyer from Poppingham, England and her furry brown dog, Moopus McGlinden, in their first adventure. This fresh, funny, and charmingly illustrated story will make even the youngest children laugh and smile. When Mrs. Pinkelmeyer tries to put her rrrrump rrrroast in the oven, she talks on the phone to a mysterious stranger in New York who is caring for her nephew while his parents are away. Any child who has felt the sadness of separation from a loved one knows a good story can provide just the right comfort. Mrs. Pinkelmeyer distracts Henry who missed his parents so much that he was no longer singing or playing. As Mrs. Pinkelmeyer talks to little Henry on the phone from the other side of the Atlan c, he forgets his absent parents while concentrating on Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and Moopus.
Mrs. Pinkelmeyer goes on to tell Henry of Moopus’s adventures at the butcher shop where he skips and sings and takes a juicy steak bone home to hide away and eat in private. A er slobbering all over the bone, Moopus is in need of a bath. Mrs. Pinkelmeyer scrubs her furry friend everywhere, even behind his ears. Hearing this sends Henry into giggles all over again (in addi on to giving him a subtle message about cleanliness). Though in the end Mrs. Pinkelmeyer burns her rrrrump rrrroast (don’t forget the rolling r’s), she is unconcerned, because she is so happy to have helped Henry feel better. This book is the perfect gift for a child whose parents are leaving on a trip or going to be absent for any reason. All children, however, will fall in love with the irrepressible joy embodied by Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and her dog Moopus. Burn the RRRRump RRRRoast is the first in a series of Pinkelmeyer stories. It won’t be long before Mrs. P. and Moopus come skipping by again.

MRS. PINKELMEYER AND MOOPUS MCGLINDEN BURN THE RRRRUMP RRRROAST by Jennifer Kelman is a cute children’s book. It is well written, cute, and is great for a child whose parents are going away for a few days. It is the first in the Pinkelmeyer stories.I enjoyed it with my grandchildren who are 9 and 6. It is about a kind-hearted English lady, Mrs. Pinkelmeyer and her silly dog, Moopus.They laughed, they thought the dog was the cutest thing in the world. I would recommend this book especially if you have young children/grandchildren and are gone often or just want something silly to read to your love one. It is a happy, funny, short, cute story that will make you laugh. This book was received for the purpose of review form Bostick Communication and the author.
