5 StarsWonderful book, fantastic illustrations, great fun! --NGK, Author of Harry the Happy Mouse
Planet Scrabbage and the Vegerons is a story that introduces children to vegetables in a completely different, fantastical way. A tale that encourages little kids to explore, to use their imagination and to take on this great journey to get to know the great personalities of sprouts, carrots, peas and many others.
The adventures through the microcosmos of a cabbage planet illustrate eating green with a unique approach and eating healthy has never been more fun.--Michael Sokolar, Founder of Bedtime Stories (getbedtimestories.com)
About the Author
Hello, earthlings! I'm an award-winning children's author and scientist based in London, UK.
I work in clinical research (developing new medicines) and I'm also studying for my PhD. I very much enjoy my science career but I also have a real passion for writing stories!
I have been writing fiction for nearly ten years. I am developing a series of children's books that are both enjoyable and educational.
My young nephew Hayden influenced my decision to become an author. I loved seeing his reaction when my sister Michelle first read one of my stories to him!
In my spare time, I love going to new places and I try to have as many holidays as possible. My partner Adrian and I absolutely love Scotland, especially the Isle of Skye.
My first picture book, Praxx and the Ringing Robot, won second prize in the Picture Books 5 and Younger category at the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards 2017.
And that brings us to now... I'm currently working on several new book ideas. I am now developing my first short story, Engella, into a middle-grade novel. I have five books planned for a brand new series - The Chronicles of Engella Rhys.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them!

My six year old niece, Daisy read this to me a few days ago. With the exception of a few more complex words she hadn’t come across before, she was able to read this quite easily.
Daisy loves vegetables, and when she comes to visit I’ve never had problems getting her to eat pretty much any vegetable I put on her plate. I was dying to get her to read this book and see if she enjoyed it. In fact, she loved it. She laughed at the mention of smelly bottoms. We got a “Oh, they’re so funny. They’re wearing clothes!” the first time she saw a picture of the Vegerons. She loved the illustrations, and happily laughed or excitedly commented on them all.
We both loved that each type of vegetable had a different personality and laughed at the ending. I doubt either of us will look at sprouts in the same way again.
Even a couple of days later, Daisy was still making faces with the vegetables on her plate and suddenly announced she’d spotted some clever peas in her stew.
Who knows, this story may even encourage some little ones to eat more vegetables.
Amanda (age 9) says that the story is cute and that kids will want to eat their vegetables so that they can be like the Vegerons. The Vegerons are painters, explorers, athletes and more!
The illustrations are cheerful and the rhyming text is lots of fun. This book will make your picky eater giggle and want to try that green stuff on the plate!

I received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for an honest review.
The artwork is cheerful, colorful and pretty accurate so that kids can see it and remember what it looks like fresh (and maybe even try eating them? ). The rhymes are easy and fun for the parents to read to kids in various voices to bring the story to life. It's something sure to put a smile on your face and educational as well.
