Or will she turn the tables on Mom?A familiar battle of wills escalates into a hilarious standoff in this bright, cheerful book, full of charming graphic illustrations.

Eat Your Peas is the perfect dinnertime companion!
A hugely funny and original book about fussy eaters and dinner time showdowns.
