Constable Colin the Carrot and the Case of the Missing Petits Pois

I have recently come across a new foundation literature series published by Indepenpress called the World Of Little Eden by June and Caroline de Souza. The series commences with Constable Colin the Carrot and the Case of the Missing Petits Pois featuring a cast of colourful fruit and vegetable characters, and recounting their adventures in their natural environments.

It’s obviously highly educational and turns veggies into great fun characters. This will help especially with fussy eaters 🙂


The books are for children aged 5 to 7 (key stage 1), but the bright colourful pictures make the stories very accessible to the younger Foundation Stage (ages 3 to 5).
