“Gardening goodness, just the ticket for a science storytime or cozy lap reading.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The rhymed text is a pleasure to read, making it a good choice for storytime as well as individual reading. Children will enjoy this story with its satisfying ending. A good choice for spring reading.” – School Library Journal
From the author of How to Teach a Slug to Read comes a delightful story about a pea named Arlo who wants to be free. So off he rolls...and rolls...and rolls. He meets a slug, he meets a bug—and still he rolls until...you'll see! Filled with charming illustrations and told in verse, this endearing tale explores the ideas of independence and striking out on one's own.
