Holly has been working on a great experiment with vegetables. After months of research, Holly fills the the air with vegetable seedlings. Her goal is to study the effects of extraterrestrial conditions on vegetable growth and development. Weeks go by and soon the sky is full of giant vegetable- “cucumbers in Kalamazoo, Parsnips in Providence, and Artichokes in Anchorage.” Holly is confused because there are vegetables in places that were not apart of her experiment. What was going on? The answer is a nice touch to the story.
This book can be for older readers because of the theme of the story. Young readers can hear the story, but may not connect to it as well. The illustrations are wonderful and truly deliver a story of their own.

A book such as this can spark some interest in conducting science experiments.
