Synopsis

If Little Pea doesn't eat all of his sweets, there will be no vegetables for dessert! What's a young pea to do? Children who have trouble swallowing their veggies will love the way this pea-size picture book serves up a playful story they can relate to. Plus, this is a fixed-format version of the book, which looks nearly identical to the print version.
