I'm sure almost every child can sympathize with the daughter in this story. Mom won't let us have the same thing everyone else has! She just keeps saying that's the way it is! And when the "thing" is what's growing in the yard, everyone in the neighborhood can see it! But when the secret is revealed, everyone in the neighborhood gets on board with the amazing ugly vegetables. Love the diversity of the neighborhood, also love the fact that its message is delivered without hitting you in the head with a two by four. And you'll get hungry reading it.
