Sometimes spending too much time with a person can start to feel stifling. This is what Peanut the penguin experiences in Peanut Gets Fed Up. He is a stuffed animal that Pearl has owned since she was a baby. He was there with her on all her firsts, such as her first step and first words. Although Peanut is an extremely well-loved stuffie, sometimes he doesn't like being with Pearl, such as when he gets caught in the rain or his arm rips.

As the grass always seems greener on the other side, Peanut wonders what life would be like without Pearl. It would allow him to do whatever he wants when it suits him. Peanut makes the great escape but soon realizes how much he misses Pearl. At the end of the story, Pearl and Peanut are reunited, and Peanut appreciates his life.

I was drawn to this book's sweet illustrations and found the story being told from Peanut's perspective engaging. Peanut's frustrations were relatable and I really enjoyed how in the end Peanut understood that Pearl was someone he can always depend on.
