What if Vegetables Were People? by Kate Wengier

Thu 19 September 2019

If you have a fussy eater in your family, maybe it's time to try this book! Imagine if beetroot rocked out onstage, tomatoes played tennis or pumpkins caught waves!

Author and dietician, Kate Wengier, wrote this wonderfully fun and creative book with her four children: Elijah, Oliver, Ari and Lily. The vibrant veggies jumping off each page were created by talented Belgrade-based artist Marina Veselinovic.
