Overview

Martha HATES green beans. When some mean, green bandits stroll into town, anyone who ever said "Eat your green beans" is in big trouble. But when the beans kidnap Martha’s parents, Martha is forced to take action. She can think of only one way to stop the villainous veggies from taking over her town, and it’s not pretty…or tasty. Featuring absurdly funny text and illustrations with attitude, this is a hilarious read for everyone – even the pickiest of eaters.

“LaRochelle’s text is both picturesque and succinct, a tasty treat to read aloud.” – Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Dramatically comic illustrations rely on bold colors as well as exaggerated gestures and facial expressions to heighten the absurd…a must for picky eaters.” – Kirkus Reviews
