All Three Have Snotty Noses

Maria Nilsson Thore, illustrated by Maria Nilsson Thore

Welcome to the Green Pea Preschool! The friends Valle, Ester and Idde are a trio of strong-willed, independent two-and-a-half-year-olds. Maria Nilsson Thore’s books about All Three at the cosy Green Pea Preschool are full of fun details to discover and scenarios every preschooler can relate to. Uniquely attuned to the child’s world, Nilsson Thore shows how an ordinary day at preschool can be anything from dull and drab to fun and frolicsome.

Ester’s nose is runny and snotty. There is sticky goo all over the place! The teacher fetches tissues and Ester blows and blows her little nose. It turns out she has a temperature, too. So Ester gets to snuggle up in the cosy corner and wait for Mum to take her home. Unfair, say Idde and Valle. Then they get snotty noses…

Maria Nilsson Thore is one of Sweden’s most beloved illustrators and picture book authors. Her atmospheric visual worlds contain both big emotions and clever little details for children and adults alike to discover and lose themselves in.
