Lola will not eat peas. In fact, she won't eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, eggs, sausages, cauliflower, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not eat a tomato.
When Charlie discovers that if peas are green drops from Greenland, and that carrots are orange twigets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate.
I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato is an hilarious book that picks up a familiar childhood theme and takes it to the extreme. The imaginative presentation of the text, combined with the mish-mash collage of Lauren Child's illustrations brings an everyday dilemma to rip-roaring life and offers an ingenious solution to a problem that can turn into a daily battle between parent and child.
I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato is the best fun a child will ever have at supper time. Age range: 3 to 5--Susan Harrison --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
