Foreword Review — Sept / Oct 2011
A tiny seed dares to be different from his brethren, taking on attributes of the creatures he most admires: a peacock’s feather to become beautiful, tiger’s stripes for bravery, and the trunk of an elephant fashioned from a blade of grass, in order to appear big and strong. His fellow seeds make fun of The Little Pea, but his desire to be different prevails. After burying himself in the earth to hibernate, a plant sprouts with the happiest, most diverse bunch of peas ever. Ages four to eight.
