Author: David LaRochelle bean
Illustrator: Mark Fearing

On the dust jacket: “Green beans are good for you. Green beans will make you big and strong.” Martha doesn’t believe what her parents tell her. And nothing will ever -EVER- maker her eat them. 

But when some beady-eyed, boot stomping beans bust into town and start causing trouble, Martha knows she has to take action against this gang of outlaws, cutthroats, and desperadoes. She can think of only one way to stop the villainous veggies, and it’s not pretty… or tasty. 

Candy House Review: Does it get better than green beans with mustaches and pirate hats? No. No, it doesn’t. This is the most fun book ever. I can’t tell you how much my children and I enjoyed this ridiculous story. The illustrations are splendid and I can’t say enough about how great this book is! Go read it!
