Description


A deliciously funny book about identity and being confident in your own skin—featuring the world's most popular superfood, the avocado!

Avocado is feeling just fine in the produce section at the supermarket until a young customer asks a difficult question: "Is an avocado a fruit or a vegetable?" Avocado doesn't know the answer either, and the question won't seem to go away! Soon, avocado is in the midst of a full-on identity crisis.

Children will laugh along as Avocado hunts for answers in each aisle of the grocery store, chatting with fish, cans of beans, sausages, and finally a tomato, who confides to Avocado that he doesn't know what HE is either, adding "And. I. Don't. Care." With cool, vivid artwork and a funny twist on every page, here is a story that celebrates individuality and fluidity, letting children know they are perfect just as they are and however they choose to express themselves.

Praise For…


"A delightful tale to help readers figure out where they belong, and, if a wise tomato is any indication, why that question may not even ­matter." —School Library Journal

“Pair this with Underwood’s Ogilvy (BCCB 5/19) for a celebration of nonconformity (of produce or otherwise), or simply bring it out for any food-themed storytime.” —Bulletin
