Description

This funny and light-hearted tale is a delightful, laugh-out-loud story of friendship, humility, and vegetables, which kids of all ages will love!

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.

“Easy peasy” chorused the Pea Pod Possy. “We went skiing through the Wobbly Wild Woods, home of the white whistling wolves! And only one of us got eaten!”.
 “Don’t be silly”, said Tomato, “I went trekking through the…”
“TOMATO! You’re not even a vegetable!” Potato protested. “Besides, I climbed to the top of Vege-Table Mountain!”


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.

Children and veggies are usually not very good friends. There are kids who don't even know the name of the various vegetables, let alone eat them. This funny picture book aims to change that. The visual world is playful and full of colours, the copy is creative, while the entire book is informative and introduces the kids to lots of cool vegetables.

Strongly recommended to picky eaters - children and their parents alike.

Thank you NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group / Frances Lincoln Children's Books for an Advance Review Copy.

Light-hearted book that probably won't sell broccoli to the very young, but will go some way to getting them to at least try the stuff. If they don't object to eating book heroes, that is – for broccoli is in contention here to win Vegetable of the Year. Alright, she's a rank outsider, but all the same. Colourful and silly enough to appeal to the right age range, this might make several veggies appealing in fact, so is a potentially quite useful thing to have on hand.

Broccoli's Big Day is a great book to get children to love vegetables ! I loved the portrayal of different kinds of vegetables and their different personalities. It was pretty funny, but sweet too.
