Do you deal with a picky eater like I do? If you do you can totally relate to this picture book! Every Tuesday night a little boy sits at the table while his parents serve pork chops, mashed potatoes, and......peas. His parents don't understand what happens to him when he eats peas. He turns into a Veggie Monster. As a parent who deals with dinner eating issues almost every night I could really connect to this story. The parents made snarky side comments that I found very humorous. The characters in the story look like colored cardboard cutouts and I thought that the real pictures of the table settings and food added a nice touch. Overall, this was a short, quick read that the whole family enjoyed.
This book was borrowed from the library.
