The Runaway Pea

(2 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

It’s time for tea! But this plate full of veggies are VERY shocked when one little pea decides that, no, he does NOT want to be eaten, thank you very much. It’s not time for tea; it’s time for adventure!

With a hop, skip and a jump, this independent pea is seeking freedom. But what challenges will he meet along the way? Squidging through tomato ketchup, splashing in the dog’s water bowl, and getting a burnt bottom from the toaster are just a few of the unforeseen obstacles he has to navigate in this kitchen assault course. And where will it lead? Will this pea find that happy-ever-after at the end of his quest?

The Runaway Pea is a super fun story to read together, with lots of playful words used in the lovely rhyming text. There are lots of things to talk about, from the detail in the pictures to the range of emotions the pea experiences on his journey. And giggles are very much guaranteed.
