The delightful story of how the adventurous eating habits of a family dog inspire his child owner to try new foods!We all know that dogs will eat anything. We also know that kids' tastes generally aren't so wide-ranging. While ice cream and pizza might be devoured in the blink of an eye, the dreaded 'green stuff' (vegetables to the adults) is often pushed to one side of the plate. Author Pete Carter understands this phenomenon well, as he shows in the adventures of Benji. In delightful duotone illustrations and engaging text, we see how Benji's willingness to eat anything - from daffodils to brussels sprouts, ice cream to avocados, sandwiches to bones - gradually inspires his child owner to be a little more adventurous at mealtimes. Although dogs and kids do have standards and it seems there's one thing neither of them will touch! The perfect book to encourage fussy eaters to try a few more vegetables! Illustrator James Henderson is Pete Carter's nephew, making this picture book a family affair.
