Description

A fantastically funny story that appeals to children of all ages - and makes adults laugh out loud, with the bold simplicity of Herve Tullet or Dick Bruna's Miffy.

"very funny, very cute"
Guardian

Made using a collage of supermarket carrier bags, Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea is an irresistible story about empathy, diversity, and the joy 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.

This paperback edition is satisfyingly large, with shiny, textured peas on the cover!

Review quote

very funny, very cute * Guardian * 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 * 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! * Picture Books Blogger * A really valuable lesson through a simple story with wonderfully vibrant pictures * Juno Magazine * instant appeal for pre-schoolers and will charm readers of every generation * Lancashire Evening Post * a story that helps to celebrate diversity and differences * The Bookbag * Simplicity is the charm of this picture book story -- Julia Eccleshare * Love Reading 4 Kids *

About Morag Hood

Morag Hood has a unique voice. Her idiosyncratic, wry humour permeates everything she does, creating books of style and irresistible charm. Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea was a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration, marking a glorious picture book debut. Morag spent her childhood writing stories, painting, and dreaming of having a pet duck. Following a degree in Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art, and an MA in Children's Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, Morag returned to live in her native Edinburgh with her husband. She still likes making stories, printing, cutting and sticking, and freshly sharpened pencils. The pet duck is yet to make an appearance.
