Item description for The Invasion of Planet Wampetter (A Planet Wampetter Adventure) by Matthew Angorn Samuel H. Pillsbury...
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 first book in the series of adventures on planet Wampetter, "The Invasion of Planet Wampetter" introduces the reader to the planet's residents - the wampetters. Planet Wampetter has always been a particularly easy place to travel to for a visit. You don't need any special shots, passports, or anything else you might need to visit other planets. So, when humans come for a visit they are welcomed and the wampetters are happy to make them welcome. Soon they begin to realize all the implications of helping the humans develop planet Wampetter into the first theme planet and try to stop the process. Will they be successful? "The Invasion of Planet Wampetter" is an exciting adventure with the wampetters, which simultaneously teaches several valuable ethical lessons to the reader. A fun and adventurous read for the pre-teen or early teen reader, it is a recommended read.
This is a Fantastic book for kids!! Mar 5, 2001
Hi; I read this book when I was 9 years old, from the first chapter that I read I was thrilled with the story!! I loved the book so much, that when I met the author last year, through a dear friend of mine that stayed for a short time in Chile. When she told me that she was the daughter of the author, I was so impresed!! Now she is in California. I hope that the people who read this book will have the same opinion as me and would have the same luck to find the author!!
