2023 - 1970’s Immersion Reading Challenge

The Wumpy World by Bill Peet (1970) 44 pages.


I’m starting the new year off with 6 Bill Peet children’s books from the ‘70s. These will all be donated to Bridge City Elementary School

Putting aside today’s political scam on “climate change” to coerce a move towards a one world government, this book actually does show the truth about humans and our destructive ways here on earth…except this takes place on Wump World.

The author should have devoted more than one page about the cute little Wumps and their carefree life before the Pollutians from Pollutus came and destroyed everything so kids can connect and really feel sorry for them. Otherwise, a good little story.
