Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We belong together.

Combined, we make a dish.

Were made for one another,

Cause together were delish. 

Some things in life are made for each other: peanut butter and jelly, pancakes and syrup, hot dogs and relish . . . and two best friends who together create the ultimate recipe for friendship! Sweet, rhyming text and sidesplitting illustrations welcome young readers into a whimsical world of tasty combinations and tender sentiments and make them hungry for another read. Perfect for friends of any age, You Are the Pea, and I Am the Carrot is a delicious gift for the one you love.

Praise for You are the Pea, and I am the Carrot

"The texts springboard is a cherished, symbiotic adult relationship (as Elkins dedication attests), which is lovely..."

--Kirkus Reviews

"The concept is sound, celebrating the love between friends or family members..."

--School Library Journal

"Every vignette is worth at least a giggle, usually an 'Awww,' and, in one instance, a book of its own..."

--Publishers Weekly

 

Review:

"Debut author Elkins hits the collaborator jackpot with veteran cartoonist and master of sly visual humor Lemaitre, who takes a catalogue of cute but unsurprising rhymes about food and friendship and turns them into a showcase of inventive foodie anthropomorphism and sweet silliness. For 'You are the dog, and I am the relish,' Lemaitre imagines the hot dog as a glamorous celebrity descending a staircase, with the relish acting as a coif worthy of Lady Gaga. Elsewhere, bread and butter slow dance to a gramophone ('I am the butter, and you are the bread'), and the pairing of 'Sunny-side eggs with Canadian ham' inspires a Northwoods scene, with the eggs' bright yellow yolks serving as eyes mooning over the canoe-paddling, lumberjack-outfitted bacon. Every vignette is worth at least a giggle, usually an 'Awww,' and, in one instance, a book of its own: What's the story behind the tearful reunion of macaroni and a cheese wedge on the landscape of an alien world? Ages 3 — 7. Author's agent: Becky Amster, Becky Amster Literary Enterprises. Illustrator's agent: Holly McGhee, Pippin Properties." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
