Title: Apple vs. Asparagus | Author: Tracy Wainwright | Illustrator: David A. Cutting | Publication Date: March 4, 2014 | Publisher: TLC Wainwright Publishing, LLC | Pages: 40 | Recommended Ages: 3 to 8
Asparagus wants to play with Apple, but is turned away because he’s a vegetable. Apple runs off with his friends Apricot and Avocado. Soon, more fruits and vegetables join the two sides, each arguing their group is the best. Iceberg Lettuce comes along and says no, those thing don’t matter. The greens should stick together. Will these healthful foods ever figure out that they are all nutritious and good?
