Washed Away (The Runaway Pea)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade
Series: The Runaway Pea

This silly and quirky kitchen escape about a rebellious pea's trip down the drain shows what can happen when you take your eyes off your food--perfect for fans of Sue Hendra, Paul Linnet, and Jory John!

The Runaway Pea is off the plate again...and this time he's bounced right down the drain! It's cold and dark, but he's not the type who gets grum-pea. Instead, the Runaway Pea is having an amazing time splashing and sliding toward the sewer and making new acquaintances along the way! But are Duck, Fish, and Frog looking for a new friend? Or for a little green snack?
