Once upon a time a baby was born. His name was Veggiebaby. He starts out life eating vegetables... all kinds of vegetables. As he grows bigger and bigger, he turns into Veggieboy and that's when he starts practicing his superhero skills. Even a superhero needs to practice when it comes to flying and heavy lifting and especially shapeshifting.
Veggieboy keeps eating his vegetables and practicing and pretty soon he becomes Veggieman! Fortified by vegetables, Veggieman turns into a superhero who loves to help other people.
One part slapstick humor and two parts, carrots and peas, this is a fun adventure story about a baby who eats plenty of vegetables and grows up to be a fabulous superhero...named Veggieman...no Wedgieman...no Veggieman...no Wedgieman....
