Once upon a time there was a princess named Penelopea. Penelopea lived in Capital Pea, where people eat peas by the pound—pureed, poached, and pan-fried!
There was just one problem. Penelopea hated peas. So she came up with a plan to make the king and queen think she had eaten her peas, but it led to a catastropea of epic proportions!
Eventually, in an effort to make peas disappear from the kingdom forever, she tries just one pea…then another…then another…and discovers they are positively pea-licious after all.
Includes a section for parents and caregivers with ideas for introducing picky eaters to new foods, and encouraging children to eat a variety of healthy foods.
