Lee is a pea. All of his friends are peas; except Colin. Colin isn't a pea.

And so begins the deliciously funny story of two very different friends: a small green pea and a tall orange carrot stick. Colin the carrot can't do everything the peas can, but he has some special carrot-y qualities that make him a very good friend to have.

All about the beauty of making friends with people (or vegetables) who are different from you, boys and girls alike will love Colin and Lee's clear shapes, bright colours and the playful approach to everyday objects that make this book an instant favourite.

Made using just a collage of supermarket plastic bags and painted facial expressions, Morag Hood has created a timeless picture book with unique and engaging artwork that is brimming with warmth and humour. With the bold simplicity of Herve Tullet or Dick Bruna's Miffy, and a dry wit and charm all of Morag's own, it is a fantastically funny story that appeals to the very youngest child - and makes adults laugh out loud.

Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea is a brilliant debut from Morag Hood, runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The perfect way to help children celebrate individuality, friendship... and vegetables! * Lancashire Evening Post *
In a world where we may be ridiculed for standing out and being unique, this book not only celebrates our individuality, it positively advocates being different and for that, we love this book! * https://picturebooksblogger.wordpress.com/2016/05/30/lee/ *
Simplicity is the charm of this picture book story of the unlikely friendship between very different vegetables. * LoveReading4Kids *
A really valuable lesson through a simple story with wonderfully vibrant pictures * Juno Magazine *
a story about differences with bright colors and quiet humor * Publishers Weekly *
Wonderfully understated humor, thought-provoking illustrations, and a spot-on theme about the enriching nature of embracing differences * Kirkus *
An amusing and deceptively simple look at friendship and difference, this is a lovely book for young readers * BookTrust *

“‘All of his friends are peas. Except Colin.’”

Colin and Lee are clearly very different, and difference can be confronting. Colin isn’t described as a carrot inside this book. It is simply pointed out that ‘Colin isn’t a pea.’ Their differences initially seem to... More
