Petro the lazy boy, goes on an out-of-this-world adventure as he tries to save a small town from the torments of the Flea King and his minions. The characters which are based on traditional Filipino folk stories are imaginatively recreated and given a unique spin by the author. This wordless picture book is perfect for that reluctant reader as each beautifully rendered illustration shows a fantastical world of adventure that goes beyond words. How will Petro survive after being eaten by a large Balyena, or meeting the half-man half-beast creature that lives in the forest? Get this book and enjoy the whirl-wind adventure that takes more than one read to truly enjoy. Petro is a story about childhood, adventure and hugs from grandma.
