"HOW MARTHA SAVED HER PARENTS FROM GREEN BEANS," by David LaRochelle, illustrated by Mark Fearing, Dial Books, $16.99 (ages 5-8)

Martha isn't a fan of green beans and doesn't eat them. When a mustached and beady-eyed posse of green beans who rustle up all sorts of havoc, including kidnapping her parents Wild West style, she has to puck up her courage against the veggies who don't think she'll hurt them. After all, she hasn't eaten a green bean in her life.

It's a fun mealtime book that will show one reason to each those green veggies.
