The story of Three Little Peas is playful and surprising and provides a tender description of life itself. From discovery to discovery, our pea protagonists wonder at the world and brave its dangers, until they end up just where they need to be. And then beautifully, inevitably a new pea escapes, and this little pea makes three!

After receiving her baccalaureat, Marine Rivoal went to art school, where she threw herself into learning everything she could about the art and craft of bookmaking. In 2008, she received her second degree, this time in graphic arts, from the Estienne Art School. Next, she went to the School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, from which she graduated in 2011. There she deepened her skills and knowledge of engraving and began to experiment with different printing techniques. Today, Marine continues her experiments at a collective for printing and engraving on the outskirts of Paris.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Rivoal's soft black-and-white etchings (the only color is the green of the peas) render a dreamlike, stylized depiction of vegetation that harkens back to the jungle paintings of fellow French artist Henri Rousseau. This book can only be fully appreciated by lingering on each spread, and the minimal text encourages such close looking. Flora and fauna are detailed with loving care and humor." -- STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews
"Newcomer Rivoal, a French printmaker, creates b&w spreads that zoom in on growing plants with documentary immediacy. Blades of grass, radishes, drops of rain, and stalks of asparagus . . . Readers can spend long stretches of time inspecting the garden and identifying the plants and animals." -- Publishers Weekly
The story here is simple enough for a toddler to enjoy and they will love going on an adventure along with two charming green peas . . . Stunningly lovely and unique illustrations elevate this simple picture book to something magnificent. Appropriate for ages 2-4. -- Waking Brain Cells
