“Peas? No Way!” says Valdemar the little wolf when he sees them on his plate. He really hates those horrible green things. Valdemar swallows his fish fingers whole – one, two, three. Yum! But when Papa says he has to eat his peas before he’s allowed any chocolate ice cream Valdemar devises a clever plan that will enable him to have his ice cream without eating a single pea!
A lovely, funny story from Swedish author and illustrator Maria Jönsson, translated by Julia Marshall. Expressive comic pen and ink illustrations with dashes of red, green and brown help to endear the reader to the cheeky protagonist in a story dealing with a very familiar meal-time battle over food.
