Peas in a Pod by Tania McCartney
Published by EK Books
Tania McCartney’s perfectly pink picture book, Peas in a Pod is stunningly illustrated by the gifted Tina Snerling. This is their third collaboration together (An Aussie Year and Tottie & Dot) with more due for release in late 2015 (A Scottish Year and An English Year).
Meet quintuplets Pippa, Pia, Poppy, Peg and Polly, who since birth did everything the same. Eating, sleeping, crying, sitting and potty time were all the same. They were just like peas in a pod.
As the girls began to grow, they realised they didn’t want to be the same anymore and it was chaos!
They were not behaving like perfect little peas so Mum and Dad stepped in and everything was the same again. But the girls enjoyed being different. They didn’t want to be boring and the same. First they experimented with their hair; then they changed their clothes and their shoes. One wore a bow, another a hat and there was even one with a crown. Their hobbies and their interests were different with each little pea dreaming of something different.
Tina’s illustrations are bold, bright and inviting to the eye. The peppered changing colours on the girls cheeks are just gorgeous, a perfect partnership for Tania’s story.
Pippa, Pia, Poppy, Peg and Polly will dance their way into your children’s hearts through their mischievous behaviour.
Entertaining, colourful and fun - Tania McCartney addresses the important issue that although they were peas in a pod they were unique in their own way. Everyone is different and special and everyone deserves to be heard because no matter what people think of you you are YOU.
Your little pea will adore this book and watching the quintuplets grow, develop and express their individual personalities.
