The Tiny Tale of Little Pea

The Tiny Tale of Little Pea


Text: Davide Cali

Illustrations: Sébastien Mourrain


Little Pea is tiny. But that doesn’t stop him from having fun, exploring and daydreaming. Once he starts school, things get a little tougher: he is too small to take part in activities. Too small for the flute, for the gym, for the schoolyard… What can he aspire to be when he grows up?

    “The synergy between the words and Sébastien Mourrain’s delicate illustrations invites readers to absorb the power of the drawings and scour the image to spot day-to-day objects used in a surprising way in Little Pea’s world.”

    Marie Fradette, Le Devoir


    “A book about difference that focuses on Little Pea’s strengths and advantages. The last sentence alone makes it worth the read; it deserves to be read and savoured.”

    Pierre-Alexandre Bonin, Librairie Monet (Montréal)


    “The detailed illustrations encourage readers to read the book over and over, while the simple, rhythmic text will captivate children. An adorable book about difference and determination.”

    Audrey Martel, Librairie L’Exèdre (Trois-Rivières)


    “A gentle, joyous book about difference and accepting what makes us special without trying to be like others, the ‘normals’.”

    Emmanuelle Pelot, Ricochet
