About the author:
One summer not long ago, Marcia Leiter grew too many tomatoes. She did not make ketchup or tomato pie. Instead, she sat down and drew two ears, dots for eyes and a sundress. Thus, Sweet Pea came to life and began to tell her story. String Bean came along because everybunny needs a good friend to help solve life's difficult problems. The two of them found a way to get rid of their tomatoes...but Marcia did not. She is still working on that.

Marcia has studied writing, drawing, painting, graphic design and gardening, in that order. Bunnies make themselves at home in her yard, and mice occasionally scamper about in the attic. All these particulars came together with the creating of Sweet Pea and her Tale of TOO MANY TOMATOES! Between weeding her garden and making pickles Marcia continues to write more Sweet Pea stories.

Sweet Pea's Tale of Too Many Tomatoes!

Authored by Marcia Leiter
Edition: 1

Meet Sweet Pea, a little bunny who lives in a tidy hole by the stream on the south side of the meadow. It is dinnertime. She fixes spaghetti but cannot find the tomato sauce. Her solution? Plant tomatoes and MAKE spaghetti sauce. But uh oh... it isn't as simple as she thinks. First there are NO tomatoes, then there are TOO MANY TOMATOES! She and her buddy String Bean will have to find a way to get rid of them.

Sweet Pea's Tale of TOO MANY TOMATOES! is the first in a series of Sweet Pea Tales. The author's illustrations not only enhance the story, they also tell a few tales of their own. There are naughty mice and helpful mice, red birds and blue birds, and one young bunny who seems to get himself in some precarious situations. But Sweet Pea does not seem to notice. She is much too busy trying to get rid of TOO MANY TOMATOES!
