I don't want to be a pea! by Ann Bonwill

I love this book! The illustrations are adorable and the simple story with endearing characters really made this an enjoyable book to read. Now my students....I think they missed part of it...ho hum. Hugo, a hippo, and Bella, a bird, are getting read for the Hippo-Bird Fairy-Tale Fancy Dress Party. They must decide on a costume which is where the trouble begins. Hugo wants to dress as the princess and have Bella dress as the pea but Bella is not in favor of being a pea! Bella has other ideas. Bella thinks she should dress as a mermaid and Hugo could be a rock. Obviously Hugo does not like this idea. It goes on and on until the two friends are not speaking, and not going to the party together. Will they ever be able to come to an agreement and save their friendship?
