A bestselling picture book from award-winning author, Vivian French, with vibrant illustrations from Alison Bartlett.
Do you like chips Oliver does, in fact, he won't eat anything else - until he plays a game with his grandpa.
Whatever vegetable Oliver finds in the garden, he must eat. On Monday, he pulls up carrots, on Tuesday, it is spinach . . .
This is an excellent book for parents with slightly fussy children and it introduces the days of the week.
