How many times can three babies be chucked under the chin and told they look "just like three peas in a pod"? Even the most patient babies have their limits, and Sweet Pea, Snap Pea, and Snow Pea are no exception. In a moment of rebellion, they burst from their pod into the big wide garden world where each one has a rollicking adventure completely unlike the others'.
The author and illustrator of the well-received TUMBLE ME TUMBILY have created a wondrous fantasyland - part garden, part nursery - overflowing with the beauty of young, growing things.
In her characteristic lilting and poetic style, Karen Baicker relates the challenges and the rewards of establishing one's own identity, while Sam Williams's appealing illustrations blend this artfully conceived world and the endearing creatures within to an irresistible degree.
