This picture book story by internationally renowned children's author Davide Cali is a graceful and beautifully told contemporary fable about an unconventional hero. As Little Pea finds a place for himself in the world despite his perceived disadvantage, he becomes a champion for younger siblings, small children and all those who are differently abled. By using ingenuity to overcome challenges, Little Pea empowers children to do the same, which makes this book a terrific choice for a character education lesson focusing on perseverance or resilience. It also works for conversations on self-acceptance and individuality or on creativity (Little Pea is an artist). The idea of tiny worlds is enormously appealing to young children, and Sébastien Mourrain's imaginative scenes depicting Little Pea's miniature life will draw readers in with their funny, clever details.
