Hidden deep in a jungle in India, the powerful and villainous General Muh Rhah, a huge boa constrictor, has (by accident) developed an enormous craving for peanut oil, which he considers to be absolutely delicious.
He hatches the fiendish plot of seizing the world’s entire supply of peanuts, not only to satisfy his greedy craving but, aware of the immense popularity of peanut butter sandwiches and peanut butter cookies with children around the globe, to also hold the peanut crops for ransom.
The General orders his army to organize and carry out his wishes as quickly and secretly as possible. They hasten to obey. In no time at all, entire crops of peanut plantations around the world are ravaged.
Percy Pierpont, an ace journalist with the Tidesville Daily Trough, is an intrepid pig who hails from Pork Corners, Canada. When the peanut crisis is discovered, he is asked to investigate.
Accompanied by his friend, ace photographer Hogey Truffles (a fellow pig), Percy travels to India to find and uncover General Muh Rhah and his nefarious scheme. With the help of many new-found friends and acquaintances, the two successfully carry out a plan to capture the General and overturn the scheme.
Of course, they also record the event for the Tidesville Daily Trough, giving the newspaper a sensational news “scoop”!
The Great Peanut Caper is a tremendously fun and entertaining children’s book with a generous dose of clever humor. It was launched in Stratford last November, but Mr. Colbeck, a local resident, actually began to write it many years ago for his son, Christopher.
Readers will be very happy to know that a second adventure with Percy and Hogey, entitled Flapper Goldenshoes, is being planned.
** Recommended for ages 8 years to 12 years.
