The Lovereading4Kids comment
The dramatic visual effects of the wonderful double page spreads in this book tell the delightful story of how Marvin sets out to grow the tastiest tomatoes in town – and succeeds! Marvin has much to contend with from his jeering bother and sister but he has the last laugh when, helped by a magic growing song, his tomato becomes a world beater. From the same illustrator as the wonderful Stripy horse.
Marvin is very little and his brother and sister tease him about being so titchy, so when they enter a tomato growing competition, his brother and sister tell him his tomato will be titchy too. But with a little bit of magic and a special song, Marvin’s tomato plant begins to grow completely out of control - in fact you’ll find it growing out of the pages! Can Marvin grow the biggest tomato and win the competition? A lovely story that’s not to be missed.

In the dark town of Grislygust a competition is under way - The Great Grislygust Grow-off. Marvin plans to grow the tastiest tomatoes in town but his beastly brother Boris an his poisonous sister Prunella make fun of him. 'You're a titchy weed, Marvin, and your tomatoes will be tiny too!' But Marvin is determined to prove everybody wrong and soon his competitors will find themselves in big trouble.
