An innovative and fun-filled look at the problem of fussy eating from Children's Laureate Lauren Child. This classic Kate Greenaway Medal-Winning picture book is guaranteed to make dinner time fun.
Lola will not eat peas. In fact, she won't eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, eggs, sausages, cauliflower, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not ever NEVER eat a tomato.
But when Charlie explains that peas are actually green drops from Greenland, and carrots are really orange twiglets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate . . .

The letters vary in shape and size, some lines are straight and others meander across the page. Young children love this; those who cannot yet read pick out the letters; those who can, love the variation and delight at being able to cope with it. -- Sue Walker * Books For Keeps * A paean to the early resistance years that are toddlerdom * The Guardian * A mischievous wit and cunning simplicity which, although it may have baffled some traditionalists, is still instantly embraced and understood by children * Books For Keeps * A fun look at the problem of fussy eating * motherandbaby.co.uk * A superb book to make you laugh out loud * Bookseller * So good, it's exhilarating * Independent * Brilliant * Sunday Telegraph *
