Here, young readers are introduced to the character of Big Red, who knows exactly what he wants to grow: tomatoes! After all, they are the main ingredient in some of his favorite foods: spaghetti, ketchup, and pizza.

In the end, he has to use his newfound gardening knowledge and peacemaking skills to work with the hornworms and save his tomatoes.
