“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.

LAURIE COHEN was born in Paris, France. An author of children's books and poems, she has also studied film as a director and writer. In her native France, she has written several children's books, including other titles with Marjorie Béal.

MARJORIE BÉAL is an author/illustrator living in Bordeaux, France. A mother of twins, she is passionate about graphic arts and children's literature, a field in which she has illustrated numerous books.

"The Grade 1 class I read this book to enjoyed how the flea did not let his small size determine his position."
- Charlene Leaderhouse, Resource Links

"A seemingly simple story that will stimulate young minds to contemplate perception and point of view."
- Canadian Review of Materials
