Annette  Roeder, Olaf  Hajek - Olaj Hajek Veggie Power


An extraordinary book about vegetables: from aubergines to zucchini

This masterful vegetable garden will make even the pickiest eaters curious to find out more about – and taste – what’s on their plate. Families may be placing ever greater value on locally sourced and organic nutrition, but in these days of fast food and ready meals, fewer children than ever before know the full story about those vegetables that make their way onto their plates via freezers, tins and jars. This book will change all that!

Olaf Hajek’s Book of Vegetables introduces you to seventeen kinds of vegetable. Just as in his successful picture book Olaf Hajek’s Book of Flowers, the author enriches his imaginative and lovely vegetable portraits with interesting and informative texts, explaining when, where and how vegetables grow in their natural environment and why eating them is good for you. Children will learn which plant parts are edible – and that cauliflower isn’t a flower but a blossom, pumpkins are fruit and the carrot is a root.

Information about vegetable plants is accompanied by historical facts which may surprise even adults, and Hajek’s art is full of life, inhabited by insects, birds, fruit and fabulous creatures – nature in all its magnificent glory. A feast for the eyes and all other senses, for both children and fans of Olaf Hajek.

This book is a climate-neutral production.
