Lee is a pea, and all his friends are peas, everyone except Colin. Colin is a carrot. He can't do all the same things as peas, but he can do other awesome things. The text and illustrations are sparse but humorous. Each picture is actually a collage composed of recycled plastic bags. While embracing differences is a common theme in picture books, I think the author's humor and illustrations make this one unique and thought-provoking. (M. Crews - Up to Seven).

Whimsical watercolor and ink illustrations reveal qualities of Sophie’s best friend, Bernice. A butternut squash adored with magic-marker smile, Bernice shares all of Sophie’s activities until Bernice becomes freckled and squishy. A satisfactory resolution keeps Sophie from losing Bernice’s friendship.
