Description

When Charlie’s mysterious aunt turned up after her

mum fell ill, Charlie’s life was about to change for ever.

Whisked off to The Hollies farm, Charlie found herself

in a world very different to the one she was used to. For

someone who hated ‘vegibles’, to find herself on a farm

that grew them, was very bad news. But Charlie’s mind

was soon distracted by strange goings-on around her!

Why had her mum never mentioned her aunt before? Why

did odd things seem to happen around Twitch, the Border

collie, every time he twitched his nose? Padlocks that

sprung open, ladders that fell over, cows that appeared

from nowhere and spoons that turned into carrots! What

was the strange glowing light she could see out of her

bedroom window in the middle of the night? And who was

the horrible man who she met at the market and what did he

want with her aunt?

Hidden away in the enormous greenhouse within the

grounds of the farm, Charlie might just find the answers.

The vegetables that she so hated could also help her - Posh

Pea, Plucky Onion, Manic Mushroom, Haughty Cabbage,

Dizzy Carrot, Stubborn Potato and the Parsnip twins,

Dopey and Grumpy. If only Charlie could get to them and

hear their story, she might, just might, have a chance of

saving both her aunt and the farm!

This review is from: Yuk I Hate Vegibles (Yuk! I Hate Vegibles) (Kindle Edition)
This children's book is fantastic. I wish this book was available when my other two children where younger as its such a fun book to read. It had some really imaginative characters and we loved the talking vegetables. This book really got my youngest daughter thinking vegetables where fun to eat and i noticed afterwards that she was more willing to eat different kinds of veg! Thanks for the great read i hope you write another.
