The Runaway Pea Washed Away
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
The Runaway Pea returns for another madcap adventure! Hidden under a pile of washing-up bubbles, this adventurous little pea finds himself zooming down the plug and along the pipes towards the drain – where he meets a very nervous spider, a hungry duck with his eye on a tasty little vegetable, and an enormous frog – who surely wouldn’t eat a pea, as they’re both green, the pea decides.
You can’t help but love the little pea’s unwavering optimism as he hurtles from peril to peril – he even has a wonderful time in the dark and smelly sewers! But will our tiny hero find his way back home in one pea-ce?
Kjartan Poskitt and Alex Willmore have created a loveable and hilarious hero in The Runaway Pea, and fans of his first adventure will find even more to enjoy here – with fun-to-read, bouncy rhymes which are perfect for reading aloud, hilarious new characters, and the sheer joy of our larger-than-life, pea-sized protagonist. Great fun.
