Blog tour: Peas on Earth

Welcome to the blog tour for Peas on Earth by Huw Lewis Jones, illustrated by Ben Sanders!

More about the book…

In this festive edition, Bad Apple faces his greatest challenge yet: it’s Christmas day and everyone is just so ... jolly.

Granny Smith’s carol singing and Pineapple’s incessant dancing are grating to say the least, but it’s the cheery arrival of Pea and his extended family that pushes Bad Apple over the edge.

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas ... but how long can the Peas last?

More about the author and illustrator…

Huw Lewis Jones is a polar-exploring author and historian who lives in Cornwall, UK. His books include Explorers’ Sketchbooks, The Writer’s Map and Archipelago (all Thames & Hudson).

Ben Sanders is an award-winning illustrator and graphic designer based in Ballarat, Australia. He is the author and illustrator of I’ve an Uncle Ivan and I Could Wear That Hat! (both Thames & Hudson Australia).

My impressions…

This is the latest addition to what the publisher describes as ‘the laugh-out-loud series of picture books by award-winning author Huw Lewis Jones and illustrator Ben Sanders, in which the naughty antics of a truly terrible piece of fruit, Bad Apple, prove deliciously entertaining’. I’m ashamed to say that this was my family’s first encounter with Bad Apple… and what great fun we had. The children where literally bent in half with laughter, while I particularly sympathised with Bad Apple, as I belong to #TeamGrinch during the holiday season! The clever simplicity of the illustrations somehow makes the action even more hilarious, which has made this one of the books that I am constantly in danger of tripping over as it follows my children everywhere they go!

Three words to describe it. Comical. Fun. Christmassy.

Do I like the cover? Yes, the book is funny before you even open it.

Have I read any other books by the same author? Yes, I have come across this author before.
