Percy The Peeping Pot Plant
Percy the Peeping Pot Plant is one of the principal characters featured in the original (1980) first six books published by Thurman Publishing (Mr Men).
Wanting to always amuse the parents/teachers too, there has to be something in the story to also make them laugh.
The label on the bottle Percy is given reads ‘Supa-Grow plant food. Instructions overleaf.’ Okay, it may not be that funny, but it has a semblance of adult wit and if that doesn’t work (as well as the plant food) one can always resort to good old slapstick which is mostly what the story is about.
Peep meaning. A quick or furtive look or glance.
