A wonderful folktale from the award-winning authors of Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile
 
The villagers are planting a garden, but Spider refuses to help. He has plenty of rice to eat, so why should he do all that hard work? Then one day Spider gets tired of plain rice and decides to pick some of the delicious produce. Imagine his surprise when the vegetables start talking!

The talented team that created the award-winning titles Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile and Head, Body, Legs join together once again for a laugh-out-loud funny Liberian story.
 
The Talking Vegetables is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
