I Dont Want to Be a Pea! (Hugo and Bella, #1) by Ann Bonwill
awww, because why wouldnt the hippo and the little bird living on his head be best friends and go to parties together and get into fights about what costumes to wear? it makes me happy to think of it occurring out there in nature.
because bella (the bird, not the teenage necrophiliac) does not want to be the pea to hugos princess. and who can blame her? a pea is a totally boring costume. it is a round green ball. it could be mistaken for a boog. and no one wants to go to the bird-hippo fairy-tale fancy dress party dressed as a boog.
they attempt to come up with alternative costumes, but they just keep disagreeing, and it gets pretty nasty, you are gray and blobby...
oh, snap, bella.
so they decide to go to the party alone, but because this is a childrens picture book, everything ends up okay for the bird and the hippo, and most importantly, the pea.
is very cute.
and i thank the tomato for sending it to me. because i love hippos. and this bird is not as evil as other birds, despite that earlier hippo-burrrrn.

Truth is I just keep my thoughts, opinions to myself in case no one will care about what I have to say. When you first meet me, our conversation is going to be awkward because I would have absolutely nothing to say to you. Why do people feel comfortable texting you things they would never have the guts to say to your face? So if I like you enough to show you the real me, you must be very special. A shy failure is nobler than an immodest success.
