What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

What do you dread eating the most? For the hero of this story, it’s peas, and he thinks he’s discovered a solution.
“I closed my eyes tightly and sent out a wish
That the peas would somehow disappear from my dish.
And something quite strange and mysterious occurred,As if somehow… somebody… somewhere had heard.”
He makes a bargain with a fiendishly funny monster. First the deal is simple: the monster will eat the boy’s peas in exchange for his soccer ball. But with each new encounter, the monster’s demands escalate. Eventually, our hero faces a daunting decision―can he conquer his loathing for peas or will he lose his most prized possession?
Matt Faulkner’s uproariously detailed illustrations and Danny Schnitzlein’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.
