The Runaway Pea Synopsis

It's time for tea, but one pesky pea has decided to ping himself off the plate in search of a party! The rogue pea shoots, flings and bounces across the kitchen as he embarks on his perilous adventure - but will he find the fun he is looking for or is the kitchen a scarier place than he thought?

The Runaway Pea Press Reviews

'A runaway success' - Philip Ardagh
