From School Library Journal:

Grade 3 Up The only earthly reason to acquire this perfect facsimile of a worthless picture book is to place it in a collection of historical children's literaturenot as an example of how good many of the late 19th - Century English titles issued for the youngest readers were, but rather, as an example of how awful most of them were then, and are now. The Vege-men's Revenge, first published in 1897, features Poppy, a little girl, who is coaxed by Don Tomato and Herr Carrot to Vege-men's Land, where she is buried on the promise that this will make her grow. Poppy sleeps through a nightmare of all the chopping, boiling, etc., that makes vegetables edible and eventually awakes to take this same sort of revenge on the stuff in her garden. It's overlong, silly, told in sometimes forced rhyme, and is as likely to turn early childhood stomachs now as then. Bertha Upton and her daughter, Florence K. (both of whom suffered from terminal whimsy-dimsy-do) are best known for their Golliwog series, which never made a good Atlantic crossing either. Lillian N. Gerhardt, ``School Library Journal''
