This is a sweet and playful little book children will really be able to relate to, especially those who struggle through eating their vegetables.  It features a simple but quite clever storyline.  Little Pea must eat all his sweets before he is allowed his vegetables for dessert.

Keira really enjoys this book and thinks its so funny that Little Pea has to eat his candy before he gets his veggies, it never fails to make her giggle!

  1. I think this is a very original and funny book about what we ask our children to eat at their meals. Of course, children would think eating sweets before vegetables would be funny indeed.
    I love her drawings. They are so original but convey the message.
    Thank you for telling us about this book.

  2. sounds like a good book to encourage children to eat their veggies :-), always a worthwhile aim.
