About the book...

What a delightful book and what a sweet, loveable main character.  Little Pea is micro-size.  His mother has to make his clothes, he sleeps in a matchbox and he drives a wind-up car.  He grows older but remains mini-size.

He explores his world around him and loves to wrestle, rappel off his lego tower, read books, ride horseback (mmmm... not a real horse, would you believe a grasshopper substitute?) and swim in the frog pond.  He is a very good swimmer by the way.  He taught himself that skill at a very young age. 

He starts school and cannot fit in.  Everything there is oversized and down-right dangerous for a little guy his size.  His teacher looks at him and wonders what will happen to him in the future? How will he ever manage when his school life is over?  One thing that Little Pea discovers is that he loves drawing and guess what?  He's very, very skilled at it. 

As he journeys into adulthood he takes it upon himself to build his own home, grow tomatoes in his yard, and daily zooms to work in his wind-up car.  Can you guess what his job might be?  It's one that is tailor-made perfectly for Little Pea and everyone gives him their stamp of approval!  

The illustrations are packed full of details and emotions and look almost animated.  Kids will gobble them up and learn a very valuable life lesson -  that even the smallest among us can make a big mark.  I highly recommend this book.
