VEGGIE TALES: I CAN READ: 3 books in 1: Pirates, Mess Detectives, and a Superhero is hardcovered and really a beautiful book.

The first book Pirates in Training is a cute story about Junior Asparagus who wants to join the pirates who don’t do anything. They talk him into staying in school and learning to be important things.

The second story, Larryboy and the Mudslingers Junior and Laura go to the beach and a evil worm slings mud at them starting a war of angry vegetables.

The third story, Listen Up, Larry, Larry has a problem listening to directions and so does Junior. He’s not listening in school.

All three stories have lessons for the children to learn, and they are really easy for beginning readers to read. My twelve year old (a very accomplished reader) even enjoyed these stories.

Highly recommended. 83 pages. $9.99. 5 stars.
