Why we love it

We love the story, including the fantastical monster vegetables, and found many of the descriptions very funny. Children seem particularly fond of the Farty-Chokes! The included recipes for children to get them involved in cooking are a great idea, with the beetroot cake being particularly delicious.

'This book is a very funny and uniquely styled read; however, the magic is really how the world of fantasy and real-life gardening have been merged together to put an exceptional spin on encouraging children to grow their own vegetables.' Books for Topics
