Gregory Green loves his mom’s pea soup, but when he eats it at school, all of his friends make fun of how it looks. He doesn’t think it looks like bugs, and it tastes good! Then at recess, his friends run from him, screaming, “He’s a monster!” Gregory doesn’t know why his friends are being mean until he sees his skin is green. The teasing gets worse until an unlikely friend comes to the rescue—his teddy bear, Sammy. Sammy usually only comes to life for Gregory and his family, but Sammy has an important lesson to teach Gregory and his classmates.

Praise for Pea Soup Disaster:

2019 Readers’ Favorite Award Finalist - Pea Soup Disaster - Children - Social Issues ‬

“Excellent job depicting Gregory’s emotional state as the story unfolds. It’s so important for young readers to learn to handle their own feelings, as well as to recognize and empathize with those feelings in others. Sammy’s secret was a fun extra bonus for readers, and the accompanying art gave me a chuckle.” – Indie Originals Book and Literature Competition Judge (Best Picture Book)

“Bullying is not fun and, with colorful illustration and interesting characters, the author handles the topic in a simple manner, giving a clear message about how the color of one's skin is not important. It is a perfect book for children starting school or joining a new school midway as it will give them the confidence and courage to stand up to bullies in case they run into them.” - Readers' Favorite (5-Star Review)

“A charming and imaginative tale that can help children cope with being bullied.” – Sherry Ellis, author of That Mama is a Grouch

“A beautiful story about a bowl of pea soup and a teddy bear with a secret that shows the kids at school bullying is never fun.” – Beverly Stowe McClure, award-winning author of A Family for Leona

"Gregory is an ordinary boy and is easy to relate to. His situation, while funny, still evokes sympathy." – Tonja Drecker, Bookworm for Kids

Praise for The Missing Alphabet:

"The Missing Alphabet (A Gregory Green Adventure Book 4) by Elaine Kaye is an educational and interactive book and is a good combination of fun, adventure, thinking, and working together. It is interesting to see the kids go all around the school in search of the missing letters. The illustrations are as delightful as the treasure hunt and bring the concept to life for young readers." – Readers’ Favorite (5-Star Review)

“Kaye presents an opportunity for students to be detectives in safe environments. She is careful to weave literacy development in everyday living. This work encourages student engagement and develops leadership skills. Students learn to collaborate as they develop other team building skills that will benefit them long after they have left the classrooms.” – Martha Joseph Watts, Ed. D., Instructor, Author, & Educational Consultant
