Synopsis

Ruthie does not like vegetables. She does not like seeing them on her plate; she does not like hearing about them from her teacher. In spite of Dad's scolding, Ruthie fusses her way through meal after meal. And then Mom has an idea: Ruthie finally gets her way - no more vegetables! - as long as she agrees to help plant and tend this year's vegetable garden. Ruthie figures that growing vegetables will be better than eating them. Little does she suspect that growing vegetables will soon make vegetables grow on her.

With wild watercolors and an understated text, Nicole Rubel explores the touchy subject of fussy eating in a way that both young readers and their parents will find amusing and easy to swallow.
