Children will have so much fun poring over the detailed scenes that they won’t even realize they’re learning the alphabet along the way!

* "This high-energy romp invites repeat visits by young browsers--there's plenty to pore over and giggle about.† Delicious!"--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* "Hundreds of animated green peas tumble through the alphabet in this refreshingly original book. The illustrations are full of vitality and good humor, and the rhyming text never misses a beat." PUBLISHERS WEEKLY,†March 22, 2010†*Starred Review
†* ‚eoeHumble green peas provide inspiration in this hilarious, occupation-based romp through the alphabet‚e¶. The digitally rendered illustrations glow in vibrant, textured colors that boldly leap off the page against a background of†ample white space.†The sheer fun of the rhythmic text and the large alphabet letters work well for a read-aloud audience, but the busy, engaging details of the peas in their various worker modes are better suited for one-on-one exploration that young children will want to pore over again and again.‚e ‚e"School Library Journal, starred review
