"The Adventures of PJ and Split Pea" by S.D. Moore

"The Adventures of PJ and Split Pea (Vol. 1): Fine Feathered Friends" by S.D. Moore and illustrated by Bobbi Switzer is a cute children's book. The protagonist is a short singing boy by the name of PJ. He is ridiculed in school for his small stature. One day, he seeks a pet. After much contemplation in the pet store, PJ adopts an injured parrot. Many of the bird's wings were lost in a severe storm. Together, the parrot confesses his insecurities to PJ. The boy tries to fit the bird in vain. In the end, both learn that they are perfect as they are--imperfections and all. The morals in this book are great, and the illustrations are fantastic. The only imperfections in this children's book is the occasional syntax error and some pages that are a bit of text on top and just white space on the bottom.
