It's nearly time for the Annual Vegetable Awards and all the vegetables gather to discuss who deserves to be nominated. Unassuming Broccoli feels she lives a very normal life but decides to go along as best friend Carrot - with the amazing hair - will be there. Broccoli is quiet while the other vegetables begin to bicker about who is the best. Slowly it emerges that Broccoli is actually incredibly brave and kind, and a very special vegetable. Featuring a grumpy aubergine, an arrogant potato, and many more veggie characters this amusing tale highlights how special we all are in our own way.

Parents can be so frustrating! All these kids want is for their ice-cream-and-chips-loving parents to try one bite of healthy whole foods.

Is there anything that can convince these picky parents to try something green?... Adam Mansbach and Camila Alves McConaughey... have written a hilarious rhyming role reversal that's sure to delight even the pickiest of readers and eaters.
