Annotation A young girl excitedly helps her mother plant a garden. However, as their garden begins to flourish, the girl wonders why she and her mother planted Chinese vegetables instead of flowers like everyone else. When harvest time rolls around, the girl is impressed with the delicious soup her mother makes from all those "ugly vegetables". The illustrations are gouache on watercolor paper.
First Line In the spring I helped my mother start our garden. We used tall shovels to turn the grass upside down, and I saw pink worms wriggle around. It was hard work. When we stopped to rest, we saw that the neighbors were starting their gardens too.
Editors Note A little girl can't help but wonder why she and her Mom are growing plants in their garden that are so different from the pretty flowers their neighbors have. Mom says they are growing something better than flowers, but the little girl is not convinced until they harvest the vegetables they have grown, and something unexpected happens ... Bright, simple illustrations dance across the pages of this exciting debut from a talented young illustrator. Special recipe for Ugly Vegetable Soup included!
Editors Note 3 A little girl thinks her mother's garden is the ugliest in the neighborhood until she discovers that flowers might look and smell pretty but Chinese vegetable soup smells best of all
