'My favourite picture books were both about friendship. The more sophisticated I Don't Want To Be a Pea! features a hippo and a bird arguing about what to wear for a fancy-dress party. It's all in dialogue, so parents and children can have fun doing the voices.' (Julia Donaldson, Guardian Books of the Year)
' . . . charming story, vividly illustrated with bright splashes of colour and big type, perfect for pre-schoolers. A valuable message, entertainingly told.' (Daily Mail)
'This is a lovely book about the give-and-take of true friendship. The text and illustrations are witty and engaging, and complement each other beautifully which is ideal in a book all about the joys of co-operative play.' (Carousel)

My two-and-a-half-year-old daughter finds this book tremendous fun, and has enjoyed reading it. From my point of view, the story carries a good message about friendship, respect and compromise.
As for the presentation of the Kindle edition, in spite of the fact that the aspect ratio of the pages doesn't match up terribly well with the screen size of my iPad, the book works fairly well on it. Perhaps in the future, esteemed publishers such as OUP will figure out that devoting a whole screen to a 'This book belongs to ...' page is somewhat redundant in an electronic version, but these are not details that will concern a toddler in the least!

graphics in the form of illustrations adopted by the illustrator 'Simon'. I was as delighted to leaf through the
book as the delight I observed in the faces of the Four children who were receipients of a copy from myself.
Really quite funny for a childrens book. Hippo wants to be a princess, Bird wants to be a mermaid, Bird wants Hippo to be a pumpkin, they are friends in the end though. I think I got quite carried away with the voices actually, loved the "Whatever!".
