The Ugly Vegetables

Detailed image from The Ugly Vegetables
The wind always smelled sweet,
and butterflies and bees flew everywhere.
Everyone's garden was beautiful, except for ours.

One of Grace's most popular books, The Ugly Vegetables shares timeless themes of community and diversity. A neighborhood comes together to share flowers and ugly vegetables soup, and the young gardener learns that regardless of appearances, everything has its own beauty and purpose. Complete with a guide to the Chinese pronunciation of the vegetables and the recipe for ugly vegetable soup! Try it. You'll love it too!
