Pippa isn’t your usual princess. She prefers petrie dishes to perfecting her curtseying. And when she realizes that she doesn’t like peas, she gets a bright idea that consumes her and almost the whole kingdom.
Great rhyming, fun tale about scientific experiments with an entertaining take on an age old struggle: making kids eat their peas.
A nice rhyme scheme accompany the story of this scientist princess. The story is fun, but starts out saying how none of Pippa’s experiments work (her mouthwash makes your breath turn bad), and then all of the sudden, with the discovery of the chocolate pea, she’s the best scientist around. Even with this developmental wrinkle, kids will love the way Pippa thinks and her inventive way to eat her vegetables.
