Green Peas and Books
Hi there! This post contains SPOILERS, so if you haven’t read the book, then I recommend that you leave this post immediately. However, if you’re really curious and want to know things ahead of time (like me), then be my guest! Grab a hot chocolate, your electronical device, and settle down your bed to read this marvelous post!
“Eleven-year-old Pea and her wonderfully wacky family are back for their second adventure in this fabulously funny series.
After securing herself a best friend and settling into London life, Pea is now contemplating her future and what exactly she should be when she grows up. Should she be a writer (like Mum)? An artist (like their crazy new au pair Klaudia)? A footballer? A pet therapist? Join Pea as she attempts to find out the answers - with hilarious results!” – Goodreads.
I enjoyed Pea’s Book of Big Dreams by Susie Day because Pea is a good writer, yet, apparently her English Teacher gave her 6 out 50, and that made her want to quit writing – which is very wrong because she is a very good writer.
And then, they meet their new nanny, because the old one decided to move back with her family in Brazil. The nanny is more like an Au Pair and did all the domestic chores and stuff.
The rest of the story, however, I’m going to let you readers found out the rest. It is quite interesting, really.
And the cover itself is colorful. Bright purple, black, and orange introduces us to Pea, the protagonist!
One of the things I liked about this book the most is that Pea showed that she thought that she was a horrible writer. You know why?
Because that is a good example of how mean comments affect us and that we shouldn’t think that they’re real.
What teachers say is what makes you better. Don’t make a comment that a teacher made affect you – they’re just trying to prepare you for the world after you leave school!
At first, when your teachers criticize you, you might think they hate you. But, that’s not true! They just want to make you better for life, and the best way of learning something, is learning from your mistakes.
❝Experience is simply something the name we give our mistakes.❞ ~Oscar Wilde.
The moment has begun, folks!
I rate this book a 9/10. I just think it’s great! Especially for young, aspiring, writers who feel they just want to quit writing after something bad has happened to them. You should never feel less than others. “Oh, but Pink Smoothie!” you might be thinking, “I’ll never be successful like J.K. Rowling!”
Well, you can be successful. You can, if you work hard and stay up late typing chapter after chapter. You can be whatever you want to be, anything at all. Fame and money doesn’t matter.
You think J.K. Rowling, Oscar Wilde, Charles Dickens, and Mark Twain never got rejected? Yes! They were! Lots of famous authors were rejected, and not even one of them thought or imagined that they would be famous. Just look at Miguel de Cervantes – he died and never thought that his work “Don Quixote”, would be the world’s best Spanish-written novel of all time.
So, I hope what I said has motivated you to follow your dreams. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be the next Cervantes or Dickens.
