Age 3-5 Oliver only eats chips and definitely not vegetables. However his Gran and Grandpa’s garden is full of vegetables. When Oliver comes to stay Grandpa comes up with an ingenious way to encourage him to try some of the vegetables. This is an attractively illustrated picture book which just might tempt reluctant (healthy!) eaters to try something new themselves.
