Picture Book Review: Night of the Veggie Monster

Night of the Veggie Monster

Night of the Veggie Monster
Written and illustrated by:  George McClements
Published by: Bloomsbury, 2008

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.

Family Rating:  1 1/2 thumbs up.
