    Big Pear and Little Pear are having a grand old time playing together, until Orange comes along and asks to join in! All of a sudden, their games aren’t so much fun—it’s a little unfair, playing tug-of-war and noughts-and-crosses when it’s two against one. Finally, Big Pear gets sick of losing and leaves to find new friends—a trio of Peas! However, she soon discovers that she misses her old friends—even Orange!—and that it’s not so easy trying to fit in with new people. Finally, Big Pear returns to Little Pear and Orange, and the three have a fabulous time playing all the new games Big Pear learnt from the Peas…games perfect for three!

    With bright, contrasting illustrations and a story perfect for reading aloud, this charming picture book introduces young readers to concepts of fairness, inclusivity, and sharing. The book also encourages readers to see things from multiple different perspectives, observing that the peas are growing frustrated with Pear’s insistence on joining in just as Pear was frustrated with Orange. Overall, a lighthearted and thought-provoking book.
