#81 - Oliver's Vegetables by Vivian French

Oliver just loves french fries. When he goes to spend a week at his grandparents' house they promise him his favorite, but only if he can find the potatoes in the garden. Whatever else he pulls up during the search he must eat each night for dinner.  Oliver discovers carrots, spinach, rhubarb, cabbage, beets, and peas. He tries and unexpectedly likes eating all of these new vegetables.
