Back cover copy

Dear Reader,

Sorry if this is a cheeky question – but do you know what you want to be when you GROW UP?
I’ve always wanted to be a writer like my mum. But my new teacher Mr Ellis only gave me 6 out of 50 on my English test, and I don’t think writers are allowed to get only 6 out of 50.

So this is a book about me trying out the things a Pea might be – like a pet therapist or a footballer, or an artist – and if you aren’t sure, maybe it will give you some ideas. (If you want to be a writer you should carry on with that, only don’t write books about mermaids because my mum does those already.)

Love from Pea xx

About Susie Day

Susie Day grew up in Penarth, Wales, with a lisp and a really unfortunate choice of first name. She has had lots of jobs, including guiding tourists and professional nappy-changing - but she always wanted to be a writer. Her first book, Whump! in which Bill falls 632 miles down a manhole, won the BBC Talent Children's fiction prize, and was published in 2004. Susie now lives in Oxford, England, and eats a lot of cake and drinks a lot of tea.
