Description - Cool as a Cucumber by Michael Morpurgo
A delightful story for young readers from former Children's Laureate and author of the international phenomenon War Horse.
At first Peter isn't too keen on his teacher's plan to dig a vegetable garden to celebrate the Queen's Jubilee. Then he starts to dig up some interesting things - a huge worm, a big beetle, bits of china ... and what looks like a giant cucumber but turns out to be something a lot more exciting!
