    1 thought on “Night of the Veggie Monster”

    1. Haha.e parents were cute & funny. They together were agreeing with each other & disagreeing with their child's unnecessary tantrums! ^_^ Children do hate veges until they actually try them & suddenly they don't dislike them anymore. I guess all children wants a little attention from their parents. They are just attention seekers. Parents need to be strict to their kids & not make them choosy over any food items. They (the children) should be told that everything is important. The [...]

    2. The Veggie Monster appears (much to the bemusement of his parents) whenever a vegetable touches this little boy's lips. The histrionics he goes through are totally silly, and the mixed media pictures are lively and expressive. Most students agree that he's making a big deal out of nothing! What's a few peas, after all?

    3. I'm not sure why the First graders loved this so much but it might be fun to pair with other picky eater books.

    4. Kids at storytime didn't seem to love it as much as the adults. I think they don't get it because they relate too well to "the monster."

    5. This is a great narrative for our primary readers about a common theme told with a twist. The nightly battle of eating veggies is told with a new perspective. I can see where this text could be a mentor to tell many stories about other things that young students might not want to do.

    6. This story so takes me back when I was about eight, forcing the fork to my mouth. What looked like leaves from a tree outside (which my stepmother claimed was kale), made my toes curl.

    7. Told in first person narrative with comical parents’-eye view interjections, Night of the Veggie Monster is sure to be a hit with children and adults of all ages. It combines humor, descriptive language, and dramatic effect to bring to life a completely relatable story to all veggie haters out there!“Something terrible happens every Tuesday night.” It’s dinner time and the little boy is being forced to eat three whole peas. “They have no idea what one tiny pea does to me.” As the pea [...]

    8. We all know that vegetables are not always someone's favorite food, and in the book Night of the Veggie Monster, they definitely aren't Gorge's first choice. This realistic fiction book is a great book that illustrates the struggle and expresses the struggle most children have when their parents tell them to eat their veggies (peas). The author uses a personal experience to share with young readers how trying new things aren't always as bad as they seem. The book is a great read a loud for grade [...]

    9. A classic child reaction to vegetables is looked at with great detail and humor in the book. The young boy at the center of the episode knows that horror lurks every Tuesday night in the form of peas. And he is expected to eat THREE! From the very touch of the pea on his tongue, his body goes into a series of rejections of the vegetable's presence. All ending with a gulp and a realization that peas aren't so bad after all. But still, there is the horror of Wednesday night's broccoli to despair a [...]

    10. Thank goodness for books about picky eaters! This story will be loved dearly by anyone who has ever shuddered at the thought of eating a pea, or had fits when asked to ingest broccoli. As the boy in the story transforms into the monster from the title, the comments by his parents will provide laughs to children and parents alike. A story to shelve alongside Gregory the Terrible Eater, The Seven Silly Eaters, and Little Pea.

    11. A great small moment story that I use as a mentor text for my first graders. This story has great details, captivating pictures and a story that almost all young children can relate to. My first graders thought this book was hilarious. Very nicely written and shows that details can make all the difference in a story.

    12. This would be a great book to use for a preschool storytime about food. Every Tuesday night when his mother serves pork chops, mashed potatoes, and peas, a little boy turns into a veggie monster. First his fingers get wiggly, then his eyes water, and his toes curl up. When he finally swallows the pea, he realizes that it wasn't actually that bad.

    13. [from Quinn] Loved it, loved it, LOVED IT! It's a great length for a bedtime story and I have to admit that peas apparently don't taste that bad well, at least according to the kid."My parents act as if I'm making it all up, but I'm NOT!"They have no idea what ONE tiny pea does to me.

    14. This is for all the picky eaters out there. This is based on the author's actual son who is like this regarding vegetables,and amazingly enough, his younger son loves his veggies. This is a great book to introduce the idea of trying new things and also may help parents with an idea or two on how to get your picky eater to try it.

    15. Cute story about how one little boy doesn't like to eat his vegetables and what happens when just one pea is eaten.We read this to our first grade class during our writing lesson to illustrate how an other uses just one little time (a seed story) to create a story.

    16. The Veggie Monster can show all children that veggies are okay to eat. Although we may not all like them, they help us grow. This book shows the humerous side to eating veggies, and is a great individual read for younger grades. The illustrations are mixed with photo like collages!

    17. Preschool story time; narrative skills, print motivation; phonological awareness, vocabulary building. This is a very cute book about a kid who turns into a vegetable everytime he has to eat them at dinner. He finds out he really does like veggies.

    18. Children's book that combines illustrations with pictures. It's about a little boy who has to eat a pea for dinner. I loved it! Great for storytime!

    19. A story of a boy eating his vegetables, really really funny, especially with the side comments from mom and dad

    20. Every Tuesday night, while his parents try to enjoy their dinner, a boy turns into a monster the moment a pea touches his lips.

    21. Great story about a picky eater who freaks out over veggies. The parents response to him "freaking out" are very funny! C.2008, genre-concept, realistic fiction

    22. Reminiscent of my younger daughter's intense hatred for green beans. Many a battle was waged. The collage illustrations are my favorite part.
