Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventures of Melon and Turnip?
A sweet story with much moral value... Jan 27, 2005
Loved the story, as did my grandaughter. The songs (or poems) are catchy and there is a lot to learn for everyone.
My kids love this book! Jan 6, 2005
This book is gorgeous! Trisha Howell did a wonderful job, writing a short meaningful children's story about a melon and a turnip that have to overcome obstacles to enjoy the good things in life. As a parent of 4 children, I see that some of my children are stimulated via sight; therefore I recommend books like this to parents who wish to teach empowering ideas to their children.
And by the way, the quality of this book is super. You should buy it just for the art!

What wonderful characters. Jan 3, 2005
This is the 2nd book my children have read by this author. The characters are wonderful, and my what an enchanting way to teach beautiful values. This book also encouraged my children to do a delightful puppet show. My children are looking forward to reading her new series of "Talia and the Tower" when it comes out.
Charming! Dec 3, 2004
Children will "root" for these two delightful friends who venture out of their safe garden and into the wide world! The concept of a melon and a turnip breaking free and traveling is great imaginative fun, and the world they discover together is full of wonder, meaning, challenge, danger and beauty. A lovely book.
