The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2016 | July 2016 Debut of the Month Simplicity is the charm of this picture book story of the unlikely friendship between very different vegetables. Lee is a very green pea and so are all of his friends except for Colin who is a very orange carrot. Colin can’t do all the things that the pea-friends can do such as roll or bounce. Nonetheless, it turns out that they can all be very good friends. ~ Julia Eccleshare

- Sabrina Chorley, age 4 - 'This was a very funny book with funny illustrations, Colin and Lee is a lovely story about friendship.'
- Eleanor Haines, age 4 and mum Tanya - 'this book is much better suited for a younger audience. Simple, bright pictures. Simple short text so that they don't get bored, and a nice message about being friends.'
- Jack, age 4 and mum Emma - 'What a quirky but fun book!... It seems very simple on the surface but led to some thoughtful conversations about friendships and relationships.'
Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea by Morag Hood
Lee is a pea. All of his friends are peas; except Colin. Colin isn't a pea. And so begins the deliciously funny story of two very different friends: a small green pea and a tall orange carrot stick. Colin the carrot can't do everything the peas can, but he has some special carrot-y qualities that make him a very good friend to have. All about the beauty 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.
Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea is a brilliant debut from Morag Hood, runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration.
