The Night of the Veggie Monster by George McClements is one of my new favorite picture books. It is a story about a little boy who becomes a horrible Veggie Monster not only when he has to eat a vegetable, but when one touches his lips as well. You can imagine the disaster that takes place one night in his home when he has to eat peas. This book had me laughing out loud. The parent’s reaction to the boy’s transformation is equally as hilarious as the boy’s.
