"Delicious " --Kirkus Reviews

A vibrant and deliciously amusing #OwnVoices mystery set in India about food and gardening, anticipation, and generosity. From award-winning author Kashmira Sheth and illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler.

Every morning, Jiva works in his garden until the sun turns as red as a bride's sari. He plants peas and beans, potatoes and tomatoes, eggplants and okra in his vegetable patch. While his friend Ruvji admires his plants Jiva sings,

"Plump peas, sweet peas,
Lined-up-in-the-shell peas.

Peas to munch, peas to crunch

I want a feast of peas for lunch "

But each time Jiva is ready to pick the peas for his feast, they're already gone. He tries making a scarecrow and a fence, but it's no use. Who might have taken them this time?"

From award-winning author Kashmira Sheth and illustrator Jeffrey Ebbeler (Tiger in My Soup) comes this original #OwnVoices story set in India, featuring a deliciously amusing mystery about gardening, anticipation, hard work, and generosity.
