How Martha Saved Her Parents from Green Beans by David LaRochelle and Mark Fearing (2013)

Martha HATES green beans. When some mean, green bandits stroll into town, anyone who ever said “Eat your green beans” is in big trouble. But when the beans kidnap Martha’s parents, Martha is forced to take action. She can think of only one way to stop the villainous veggies from taking over her town, and it’s not pretty…or tasty. Featuring absurdly funny text and illustrations with attitude, this is a hilarious read for everyone — even the pickiest of eaters.
