We belong together.
Combined, we make a dish.
We’re made for one another,
’Cause together we’re delish. 


Some things in life are made for each other: peanut butter and jelly, pancakes and syrup, hot dogs and relish . . . and two best friends who together create the ultimate recipe for friendship! Sweet, rhyming text and sidesplitting illustrations welcome young readers into a whimsical world of tasty combinations and tender sentiments and make them hungry for another read. Perfect for friends of any age, You Are the Pea, and I Am the Carrot is a delicious gift for the one you love.

"The text’s springboard is a cherished, symbiotic adult relationship (as Elkins’ dedication attests), which is lovely..."
--Kirkus Reviews

"The concept is sound, celebrating the love between friends or family members..."
--School Library Journal

"
Every vignette is worth at least a giggle, usually an 'Awww,' and, in one instance, a book of its own..."

About the Author:

J. Theron Elkins is a first-time picture book author who loves spending time with his family and believes that each member is an essential “ingredient.” He lives in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Pascal Lemaitre is the illustrator of Always by Alison McGhee. His editorial work has appeared in the New Yorker. He is based in Belgium, the kingdom of good food and Magritte.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 3-In this debut picture book, a boy and girl reflect on a long list of foods that belong together: peas and carrots, macaroni and cheese, bread and butter, and extend the concept to themselves. "We belong together./Mouthwatering are we./We complement each other./We're the perfect recipe." The concept is sound, celebrating the love between friends or family members, but the execution falls flat on several levels. The rhyme scheme is forced, causing the abbreviation of "marshmallows" to "'mallows" and "flapjacks" to "'jacks," and an awkward verse ends the story. "And I am the salsa to your chip./'Cause we will always belong together/And will never-ever-ever-be split!" The cartoon illustrations, pencil with computer-added color, are engaging on some pages but slightly off on others, featuring green-colored sweet tea and a large pink marshmallow. The age of the characters depicted also seems somewhat ambiguous, making it unclear if they are youngsters playing together or teens on a date.-Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NCα(c) Copyright 2013.
