Description

What do you dread eating the most? For the hero of this story, it's peas, and he thinks he's discovered a solution. "I closed my eyes tightly and sent out a wish That the peas would somehow disappear from my dish. And something quite strange and mysterious occurred, As if somehow... somebody... somewhere had heard." He makes a bargain with a fiendishly funny monster. First the deal is simple: the monster will eat the boy's peas in exchange for his soccer ball. But with each new encounter, the monster's demands escalate. Eventually, our hero faces a daunting decision--can he conquer his loathing for peas or will he lose his most prized possession? Matt Faulkner's uproariously detailed illustrations and Danny Schnitzlein's Seuss-inspired verse combine to create a clever story about how far we are willing to go to avoid doing the things we hate.
