I Don't Want to be a Pea!

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Review

Friends Hugo the hippo and Bella the bird are excited about going to the Fairytale Fancy Dress Party together. The only problem is, they can't decide on a costume...

Hugo wants to go as the Princess and the Pea, with himself dressing up as the princess and Bella being the pea. But Bella doesn't want to be a pea - she would rather be a mermaid, with Hugo as a big, grey rock. There are more disagreements ahead, but ultimately Hugo and Bella realise that the most important thing is that they go to the party together.

With a witty text by Ann Bonwill and bold, characterful illustrations by Simon Rickerty, this quirky and distinctive story of the importance of friendship will delight young readers.
