The Day The Plants Fought Back product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsAn action-packed, hilarious story about two rowdy rascals and the trouble they cause in the garden. That is, until the plants decide to teach them a lesson ... because, as the boys discover, corn has ears and potatoes have eyes!

Illustrated by Richard Holt.

If I know anything about kids its that they are most definitely rowdy and quite often get up to mischief. My children are a great example of that and if they are not getting into trouble themselves they are always entertained by other people getting up to mischief. At 7 he loved this book and found the rowdy mischevious boys hillarious with their antics in the garden, throwing vegetables and making a big mess, he could tell they were being very naughty and that they might get in trouble.

This book is different though because the boys don't get in trouble with their parents, they get in trouble with the plants themselves, because corn has ears and potatoes have eyes and they most certainly do fight back. This was a very novel way of teaching the boys a lesson for the damage they have done in the garden and the mess they've made when the plants seemingly come to life and attack. The illustrations show the plants taking on human likenesses with eyes, ears, folded arms as they march and being able to talk. With their angry faces showing on their plant faces as they teach the boys a lesson in caring for the garden.

I did personally feel this would of been a great opening for pages on caring for plants and why they are important but this book itself didn't go into that more just an attack to scare the boys into doing the garden for fear the plants might attack again. In saying that it would be a great book to read with young children to start discussions around conservation, gardening and caring for nature. My 3 year old niece was with us when we read the story and she was quite curious about plants being able to talk and move and I noticed her quite cautiously stepping around a flower in the garden saying sorry to it as she nearly brushed against it with her foot.
