The Giant Cabbage by Cherie Stihler (2003)

Moose discovers a very big cabbage in his garden that could win first prize at the Alaska State Fair. But there’s a problem — it’s so huge he can’t lift it! An old Russian folktale inspired “The Giant Cabbage,” but this contemporary version showcases Alaska with vivid illustrations, adorable animal friends, and verbal twists and turns. Ages: 3-7 years.
