Back Cover SummaryEdit
What if we told you that planet Earth is in jeopardy? That an awful plague is headed for you and everyone you know? And that only a handful of kids are empowered to do anything about it? Well, all of this and more is true. Five kids have a strange gift - an ability to morph into a vegetable at will - and only they can save us. For only nutrient-rich vegetables can ward off the spread of this ravaging disease. Beware: Potatoes of all kinds - couch, au gratin, French fried - now rule! So be kind to them. They know things we don't.
For the sake of humanity, forget what your mom told you - don't eat your vegetables. You never know which one might be our planet's savior - or your little sister!
