Reviews

"Adorable, curvy, colorful illustrations perfectly complement the amusing alliterative language style of Princess Penelopea Hates Peas. Perfect puns and funny peas adorn these pea-luscious pages of inspiration for pea-challenged cooks, caregivers, and eaters." --Midwest Book Review

"Picky eaters will relate to this story, and the end notes give parents lots of great advice on how to broaden their children's horizons when it comes to eating." --Mom's Radius

"Princess Penelopea Hates Peas is the story of a princess who cannot be convinced to try her peas, no matter what the king and queen do. The book offers parents an opportunity to encourage kids to try new foods. There is a note to parents and caregivers in the back that provides useful tips for getting children to eat a variety of foods. The accompanying illustrations are whimsical and colorful, and help turn a topic that some children may hesitate to embrace into a book that is a great deal of fun to read."--Foreword Reviews

"Whimsical, colorful artwork turns this into a fun story....This spirited title will work in a food-themed storytime and is perfect for parenting sections."--School Library Journal
