When bananas are young they are green and firm. When we bring them home, they are starting to turn yellow. Suddenly they're a bad influence on other fruit- hanging out in pear lots on corners or in dimly lit lunch boxes. They start to smell and attract the wrong crowd. Who is the wrong crowd? What else do they do as they will?
This is a fun read for kids and banana lovers.
