How To Grow And Eat Monster Vegetables by M.P. Robertson


Meet James, and his grandchildren, as he passes on his years of wisdom growing, showing and eating Monster Vegetables. From soil types and tools of the trade to pests and free range dragons, this is the ultimate guide to surviving the most exciting and potentially deadly kind of gardening.

Perfect for Halloween and harvest, fiction meets fact-book in the most hilarious and horrifying fashion. Stunning illustrations compliment the wonderous hints, tips, facts, instructions and recipes.
