Booklist Review: "This cheerful alphabet book introduces each letter as a large, colorful shape surrounded by tiny pea creatures, green circles with arms, legs, eyes, mouths, and occasionally accessories such as hats, diving masks or flippers. The pea folk demonstrate occupations and actions beginning with each letter and identified in the rhyming, rhythmic text. The letters L, M, N, and O, which so often run meaninglessly together in the alphabet song, appear on the same double-page spread. Most of the other letters appear on their own pages or spreads, while the four pages devoted to the little characters' own letter, P, illustrate the lines We're painters, / poets, / and plumbers fixing leaks. / We're pilots, / parachutists, / we're peas and . . . / we're unique. With its digital illustrations' luminous colors, buoyant spirit, and engaging characters, this handsome picture book is definitely worth a second look, even in the overcrowded field of alphabet books.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hundreds of animated green peas tumble through the alphabet in this refreshingly original book. The illustrations are full of vitality and good humor, and the rhyming text never misses a beat. Each large, pastel letter is accompanied by energetic peas introducing themselves ("We're acrobats, artists, and astronauts in space"). Most letters occupy a single page, but Baker combines some letters the way children repeating a just-learned alphabet often do. The peas are all small and round, but Baker (Just How Long Can a Long String Be?!) gives them stick legs and arms, along with lively faces and costumes, to demonstrate his inventive view of each letter. To illustrate the letters H and I ("We're hikers, inventors, and investigators"), two peas climb a branch leaning on the H, a pea in a Sherlock Holmes hat tries to decipher footprints below, and a single pea with a light bulb above his head, smiles at his newly invented wheel that dots the letter I. Baker's after-the-Z surprise ending is a question for readers: "Now tell us, please... WHO ARE YOU?" Ages 3-7. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
