Jessie is learning to be polite. When she says 'thank you' it sounds a bit like 'DA HOO'. When she says 'please' it sounds exactly like 'PEAS'. One tea-time, Jessie and her older brother Ben are left with a new babysitter. When asked what she'd like to drink, Jessie replies, 'Orange juice peas', and that's exactly what she gets! Followed by 'milk peas', 'water peas', and on it goes. Each time, Jessie fishes the peas out of her drink and cheeky Ben giggles, as the pile of peas on the table grows bigger and bigger... This is a hilarious story for young children, with a great sense of repetition. Lizzie Well's bright, expressive illustrations perfectly capture the humour and Jessie's increasing frustration at being misunderstood.

"This book is the first publication devoted to a previously largely overlooked group of works by the internationally acclaimed artist Rebecca Horn - her rich and diverse graphic oeuvre. The drawings completed by Rebecca Horn since the sixties include preliminary studies for sculptures, works produced in conjunction with her sculptures and installations, and entirely autonomous pieces. Many of these diagrams, scores, technical designs, and evidently spontaneous drawings are enriched with collaged objects, printed words, and lines of poetry."--BOOK JACKET.
