This book is sure to appeal to picky eaters. It starts out by telling the reader about all of the things that Little Pea likes to do. He enjoys things like rolling down hills, hanging out with his pea pals, and snuggling with mom and dad. However, one thing that poor Little Pea cannot stand is being forced to eat candy for dinner. In case you didn’t know, it is what you have to eat for dinner every day when you are a pea! It doesn’t matter that each day is a different kind of candy – it is still candy, candy, and more candy day after day. Mom and Dad insist that Little Pea eat all of his candy or there will be no dessert. Of course, dessert just happens to be spinach, which Little Pea loves. Will Little Pea find a way to choke down the candy in order to get dessert? The ink and watercolor illustrations are charming, and children and adults alike will relate to this humorous tale of picky eating. Readers will never look at peas in the same way after reading this fun tale. Candy for dinner, hmmmmm is that a new diet fad?
