I love the things Charise Mericle Harper and Bob Shea have done. So I was excited to read this particular easy reader. Basically Veggie Man is a kid who loves vegetables. And he has super powers. He had to practice his superpowers in order to actually be good with them, but he worked and became Veggie Man…a superhero who wanted to help others love vegetables too. When a kid was stuck in the top of a tree, he flew up to save the day. Then he gave the kid a bunch of carrots. However, while he was...more
A funny book with nice illustrations, suitable for children age 6 - 8 years old who are reading on their own.

One day a superhero was born. His name is Veggiebaby. He loves vegetables. All those vegetables made Veggiebaby very healthy, so he grew fast and one day he turned into Veggieboy.

Veggieboy practices his superhero skills. It was not easy but he keeps trying until he succeed.

After a while, he turned into Veggieman. He is a grown-up now so he uses his superhero skill to help other people. O...more
A humorous early reader, that's actually slightly funny in places, and so are the illustrations. Note that I may be rating it higher because I can't help but compare with Tales for Very Picky Eaters, which we found somewhat lame ...
surprisingly good.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book to read aloud with my 3 year old. His laughs make it even more fun, and the reread factor only gets tiresome when he wants to reread the book more than 3 times in one sitting. He could be stalling his bedtime...or he really just enjoys this book.
Veggieboy practices flying, lifting, and helping people to hone his superhero skills, and finally Veggieman's training as a superhero is complete, but he is surprised when children want to change his name.

So excited for this new early reader series that will be perfect for boys!
A disappointing beginning to an early reader series which is likely to appeal to the Captain Underpants set. Unfocused, confusing plot. The idea has potential so I will read others in the series with interest.
This was a silly book that you wonder why it was named Wedgieman. I am glad you don't find out until you are almost done with the book.
