9780385755214: Monsters Don't Eat Broccoli

What do monsters eat?

The waitress in this restaurant just doesn’t have a clue.
Monsters don’t eat broccoli!
How could she think we do?

In this rollicking picture book written by Barbara Jean Hicks and illustrated by Sue Hendra, monsters insist they don’t like broccoli. They’d rather snack on tractors or a rocket ship or two, or tender trailer tidbits, or a wheely, steely stew. But boy do those trees they’re munching on look an awful lot like broccoli. Maybe vegetables aren’t so bad after all!

This hilarious book will have youngsters laughing out loud and craving healthy monster snacks of their own.

About the Author:

Barbara Jean Hicks is the author of The Secret Life of Walter Kitty and Jitterbug Jam. She lives in Oxnard, California.

Sue Hendra is the illustrator of more than seventy children’s books. She lives in Brighton, England.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K—Grown-ups know that kids generally don't like eating broccoli. Apparently, neither do monsters. Sure, they like tractors, rocket ships, and boulders. Only don't give them artichokes, lima beans, or anything green. When the "monsters" eat giant maple trees, though, they discover they have been fooled into eating the dreaded broccoli. The next spread reveals that the monsters are children who have fallen for that age-old adult trick of calling broccoli "trees." Not only that, but they also discover that "trees" are so delicious, they beg for "Another helping, please." For the most part, the rhyming text flows nicely when read aloud but it stumbles when the monsters repeatedly shout, "Fum,/foe,/fie,/fee,/monsters don't eat broccoli." The gouache illustrations are bright and textured; they pop off the page. However, the monsters and the backgrounds are done in similar hues so that the creatures sometimes blend into the scenery. Among a crowded field, this title doesn't stand out. Recommend Mitchell Sharmat's Gregory, the Terrible Eater (Scholastic, 1984) or Kenneth Oppel's The King's Taster (HarperCollins, 2009) instead.—Laura Lutz, formerly at Queens Borough Public Library, NY
