The Tiny Tale of Little Pea by Davide Cali
While the story of The Tiny Tale of Little Pea by Davide Cali, illustrated by Sebastian Mourrain, is not necessarily a humorous one, the wonderful illustrations make you smile. As you might guess, The Tiny Tale of Little Pea is about a teeny-tiny baby. A baby boy who wears discarded doll shoes, learns to swim in the sink and enjoys tightrope walking over the waste basket. There are many cute illustrations showing him loving life in spite of his size. That is until he starts school. By comparison, not much goes right for him at school, so he sits alone drawing. We then move to Little Pea as a grown up, which mainly means age not stature. He has a house, but can he find a job?
This is a fun book just to enjoy reading, but most would be remiss not to talk about acceptance of "different" people, and the thought that hopefully all of us can find a place to put our talents and gifts to work.
I received this copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. If you follow my posts at all, you know that's the only type of review I seem capable of writing. Which sometimes might not be a good thing! :-)
