Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea

Lee is a pea. All of his friends are peas; except Colin. Colin isn't a pea.

And so begins the comic story of two very different friends: a small round green pea and a tall, straight orange carrot stick. You'll be amazed at the fun they have together, and how very useful it can be to have a friend so different from yourself.

The clean, graphic design gives each page impact; the simple shapes textured by the material from which the collage is made: supermarket carrier bags. With the bold simplicity of Dick Bruna, and a dry wit and charm all of her own, Morag Hood has created a uniquely funny story that appeals to the very youngest child - and also makes adults laugh out loud.

Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea is a brilliant debut from a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration 2014.

Morag Hood has a unique voice. Her idiosyncratic, wry humour permeates everything she does, creating books of style and irresistible charm. Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea was a runner-up in The Macmillan Prize for Illustration in 2014, marking a glorious picture book debut. Morag spent her childhood writing stories, painting, and dreaming of having a pet duck. Following a degree in
Costume Design from Wimbledon College of Art, and an MA in Children's Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art, Morag returned to live in her native Edinburgh with her husband. She still likes making stories, printing, cutting and sticking, and freshly sharpened pencils. The pet duck is yet to make an appearance.
