Colin the carrot is tall and orange—nothing like Lee, a round green pea. He can't do any of the things Lee and his pea pals can do. Can Colin and Lee ever be friends? They most certainly can, of course, as readers 4 to 8 will discover for themselves. Also the illustrator behind I Am Bat, Scotland's Morag Hood collaged the images here out of plastic grocery bags; the results—simple, bright, joyful—are downright ingenious.
"Wonderfully understated humor, thought-provoking illustrations, and a spot-on theme about the enriching nature of embracing differences.... A story that is much more than the sum of its parts."—Kirkus Reviews
