visited an old friend during spring break, I discovered this adorable book called 'Heroes of the Vegetable Patch' by Ulf Stark and Charlotte Ramel.
And originally, it came from Ikea of all places! Have you ever seen the books at Ikea? They are super cute!
(update: the link for the book takes you to Ikea, where the book is currently for sale. There are also used copies available on Amazon.)
