ugh truly bad...I couldn't get past chapter two. Just nonsense and not in the good way that I tend to like nonsense. I finally closed the book and declared the characters little idiots...too painful to read further. ( )

This book is about a family (the Pepins) who get lots of problems everyday that have to be solved. This isn't any odarnary family either because they have a cow that makes lemonade and a talking dog & cat( that traveled around the world in a little airplane).I like this book because it's a funny and interesting book to read. The family has to come up with ideas together so they can solve the problem. There problems do actually gat solved. Thank's to the Pepins! ( )

This book is very funny. Especially for the part of the cow, Nelly making lemonade. jajaj I really like it. You should do a sequel.

This book is about this family always having problems. Like when the family has a problem and they can't solve, the author stops writing and says, "what should they do for there problem?" Then he says all these kids write him about what they should do. Also in the book their fine neightbor falls in love with a pole, but he doesn't know it intill the Pepins tell him, because he was blind thats why he didn't know it so he has to get glasses. But the neighbor falls in love with a real person as soon as he gets his glasses to see. Also they had a fine neighbor contest to see which neighbor was better because there neighbor was fighting with the Pepins other neighbor because the other one is mean. There is many stories in this book. But those were the best out of all of them.

Oh, this is a wonderful update to the idea of the Peterkin Papers, though the Pepins have no "lady from Philadelphia"-- their neighbor is just as batty as they are. Nice, if a little light. Some people may be annoyed by the device of discussing/arguing with readers supposed telepathic suggestions to the author, but others will enjoy it. Still, for fans of Pippi Longstocking and the like, very worth it. ( )
