Martha hates green beans. But when a gang of lean, mean and green b(e)andits swagger into town, everyone who has ever said “Eat your green beans” is in trouble — including her parents — and it’s up to Martha to save them.
How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans features a spunky, likeable protagonist, perfectly paced writing and wickedly funny illustrations that combine for a kid-centric, vicariously entertaining story that children will lap up with glee.
In particular, those who have never bought the parental refrain about vegetables being “good” will feel vindicated by this imaginative story about green beans “breaking bad” and revolting (ha!) en masse against the people who eat them!
