A picture book from award-winning author Shirin Yim Bridges and illustrator Fiona Lee, Eat Your Peas, Julius! is a rhyming romp through dinner as the future leader of the Roman Republic learns to eat a balanced meal and finish everything on his plate.
It’s time for little Julius, who will grow up to become the most powerful person in ancient Rome, to put on his toga, attend the dinner banquet, and eat his oysters, boiled camel’s feet, baked dormouse, and peas! It’s tough finishing everything on your plate—for kids and future Caesars, alike.
