Roll, roll, little pea / Cécile Bergame ; [illustrated by] Magali Attiogbé ; translated by Angus Yuen-Killick.

Bergame, Cécile. (Author). Attiogbé, Magali, (illustrator.). Yuen-Killick, Angus, (translator.).


When a little pea escapes a girl who is shelling peas, it rolls off the kitchen table, onto the floor, and an adventure begins. The runaway pea rolls past several hungry animals. It manages to evade a mouse, a cat, a rabbit, a hen, a pig, and a wolf, finally resting in the perfect place. The girl will find it again after some time has passed for a surprise conclusion. This circular story, told with repetition, predictive vocabulary, and bright colorful art, delivers a natural history lesson about plant life for the youngest of readers. They will enjoy repeated readings as they join in the telling of this sweet pea of a tale.
