THE RU­N­AWAY PEA

by Kjar­tan Poskitt and Alex Will­more, Si­mon & Schus­ter UK, £6.99 (ebook £4.99)

KJAR­TAN POSKITT is known for his Killer Puz­zles, Mur­der­ous Maths and the Agatha Par­rot book se­ries and Alex Will­more has il­lus­trated books in­clud­ing It’s My Sausage, Stop, Fox! and Adorab­ull, but this book is their first ven­ture to­gether.

It’s time for tea and a ru­n­away pea has bounced off the plate and plans to have fun. The pea pings, splats and twangs from one sticky kitchen sit­u­a­tion to an­other un­til he be­gins to won­der if he has made a mis­take leav­ing the plate.

Sim­ple, funny rhyming text, graphic sound ef­fects and vi­brant il­lus­tra­tions make this story a plea­sure to read aloud.
