Take a memorable trip to the farmers – market in this playful collection of twenty-one poems that will inspire readers to look at fruits and vegetables and the whole world in new ways. In these fresh poems, okra are mouse-sized swords stored in fuzzy sheaths. Purple hull peas are canoes seating green-cheeked dark-eyed passengers. And watch out for blueberries! They burst in your mouth like flavor-filled fireworks. This celebration of the power and joy of poetry includes six recipes featuring the fruits and vegetables in the book.
