Night of the Veggie Monster by George McClements (Bloomsbury Children's Books, 2008)
Many parents know all too well the daily battle otherwise known as dinnertime. If you've ever had the experience of desperately trying to convince your child to eat his or her vegetables (or witnessed the protest from a child faced with a plate of veggies), this book should connect with you. In Night of the Veggie Monster, every Tuesday night - when presented with three peas to eat (yes, only three!), the boy turns into a monster. Never fear, once he actually swallows the peas, he discovers they aren't that bad after all. A fun new offering from George McClements for all veggie-timid eaters.
