One day, the king wakes to find an asparagus in the middle of his yard. Not just any asparagus, but a really, really, really big one. Even though everybody thinks it is an amazing vegetable, the king wants to get rid of it. But even his very strong and very mean rhinoceros can't pull the asparagus out of the ground. The Mighty Asparagus is a unique and funny story from one of the most creative children's authors.

Professional reviews

"Move over enormous turnips and gigantic carrots! Now, it's the mighty asparagus that outwits a regal king, an imperious queen, a multitude of advisors, the bravest of knights, a prissy princess, and even a rhinoceros. Just what creature will provide the critical weight to uproot this vegetable? Listen and ponder Radunsky's illustrations if you have the book in hand. Narrator Kevin R. Free is as curious and full of "amazing" remarks as each character. He sweeps into this farcical fantasy world and is full of exaggeration. His slow pacing leaves time to appreciate the asides and the notion that "even the smallest effort counts." A.R. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
