How far would you go to avoid eating your vegetables? A young boy thinks heâ€™s discovered a way out of eating his peasâ€”he makes a bargain with a fiendishly funny monster. First the deal is simple: the monster will eat the boyâ€™s peas in exchange for his soccer ball. But with each new encounter, the monsterâ€™s demands escalate. Eventually, our hero faces a daunting decisionâ€”can he conquer his loathing for peas or will he lose his most prized possession? Matt Faulknerâ€™s uproariously detailed illustrations and Danny Schnitzleinâ€™s Seuss-inspired verse combine to create a clever story about how far we are willing to go to avoid doing the things we hate.
