Gregory, the Terrible Eater

Gregory, the Terrible Eater

by Mitchell Sharmat Illustrated by Ariane Dewey, Jose Aruego

Like all mothers, Gregory's mom struggles to get her little goat to eat a well-balanced diet. When she offers him tires and tin cans, all Gregory wants to eat are fruits and vegetables. But Gregory's mom is persistent and she convinces him to try just one little bite. Soon Gregory's new-found love of food has him eating everything. Will Gregory's mom be able to curb his appetite and teach him balanced eating once and for all?
