Description

A hippo called Hugo and a bird called Bella are getting ready for the Bird-Hippo Fancy Dress Party. Because they both want their own way, they can't agree on a costume and they almost don't go to the party at all. In this laugh-out-loud comedy of manners children will discover that compromise is what makes any friendship tick.

Reviews

  • '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
