"Once there was a little flea who thought that he was too little..." And so begins an innocent quest...The flea wants to be bigger. He scales a pea. Then scales an apple. He climbs aloft a flower, a plant, a tree, a home...a telephone wire, a skyscraper... Then finally, the flea finds himself on a cloud! Down below, a bear notices him. So, is the flea now big? Or just high up? The Flea uses appealingly stylized art, simple text, humorous twists, and one very determined flea to give kids a light lesson on the importance of perspective and the malleable meaning of words. Quick paced, silly, and loaded with a funny twist ending, The Flea is indeed bigger than its humble exterior belies.
