Get ready to roll with Pea, Bee, & Jay in this brand-new early reader graphic novel series by Brian “Smitty” Smith, perfect for fans of Narwhal & Jelly, emerging readers, and comic lovers alike!
Like all peas, Pea loves to roll. So when a no-good strawberry dares him to roll all the way off the farm, he swears he can do it—eazy me-zee!
But along the way, a powerful thunderstorm strikes and bounces Pea off course...and right into two unlikely new buds: a bee named Bee who thinks she knows it all, and a bird named Jay who can’t figure out how to fly.
On their own they may not look like much, but if this trio can stick together, they just might help Pea find his way back home!---from the publisher

A pea with a penchant for puns wakes up one morning and in no time at all finds himself setting out to prove he can roll farther than any other peas on the farm. Yep, it's one of those days. He gets things rolling and heads off in the direction of a big red tree when a storm arises the pea finds himself in big trouble.
When a pea has a problem what can he do? He can get lucky! Our hero meets right up with a bee and the two join forces and in no time at all a blue jay arrives to round out these three Musketeers.
Hilarious characters with heart watch out for birds, for other bees and hold tight to the knowledge that if they pretend they're marbles all will be well in the end. Laugh out loud moments make this one a delight.
