Ruffles and the New Green Thing

author/illustrator: David Melling

There’s a new green thing in Ruffles’s bowl, and he does not want to try even the smallest nibble. When his friend Ralph comes to play, he spots the new green thing and happily takes a big bite. If Ralph can try the new green thing, then so can Ruffles. He quickly discovers that broccoli—the new green thing—is, in fact, delicious! The perfect story to encourage picky eaters to try new foods.

Laugh with Ruffles as he faces all the troubles of toddler life in this brightly colored picture book series.

David Melling grew up in London with various siblings and a selection of animals, including a dog. It took him a while to decide what he wanted to do, but he never stopped drawing.

His work includes Ruffles and the Teeny, Tiny Kittens; Ruffles and the Red, Red Coat; the Hugless Douglas series; and The Kiss That Missed, which was short-listed for the Kate Greenaway Medal. The creator of around 150 books in over thirty languages, David Melling lives in Oxfordshire, England, with his wife and two children.
