The Little Green Pea by Alison Barber

Barber, Alison The Little Green Pea, illustrated by Paige Keiser. Sleeping Bear Press, 2009. $15.95. PICTURE BOOK. A little green pea dreams of growing into something big, but he needs the help of a wiggly worm to get to a place where he might have a chance. As much as I liked the illustrations in this book, the text mystified me. It seems to imply that the peas had a chance to grow into a tree, or maybe it was just saying that the pea became fertilizer for a real tree. Either way, the ending fell flat for me. NO.
