Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea
UKLA 3-6 Category
A fantastically funny story that appeals to children of all ages – and makes adults laugh out loud, with the bold simplicity of Herve Tullet or Dick Bruna's Miffy.
"very funny, very cute"
Made using a collage of supermarket carrier bags, Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea is an irresistible story about empathy, diversity, and the joy of making friends with people (or vegetables) who are different from you.
Boys and girls alike will love Colin and Lee's clear shapes, bright colours and the playful approach to everyday objects that make this book an instant favourite.
This paperback edition is satisfyingly large, with shiny, textured peas on the cover!
