And bonus! Family Christian is giving away a copy of both comic books to one of my readers. Enter at the end of this post.
We’ve always enjoyed VeggieTales. Long before I could talk my daughter into eating her greens, she loved watching the little animated veggies.
If you like to talk to tomatoes
If a squash can make you smile
If you like to waltz with potatoes

For us, in our household, my daughter always liked the girl characters. Truth be told, she’s always preferred everything girlie. We didn’t mean for things to go this way. She’s just inclined to all things Pink. Glittery. Shiny. Razzmatazzle.
G-I-R-L-I-E. We’ve watched most of the veggie tales but her favorites have always been the ones with a female lead.
These days, she’s learning to read. I remember the first time she read a random sign out in public. Our local McDonalds has a decorative rock wall in it. We sat in a booth one day, eating our lunch, when she said,
Mom, why does the sign say ‘Do not climb on the wall?’
No turning back! So, I was excited to review the new VeggieTales Super Comics. They tell all the timeless stories we’ve come to expect from VeggieTales. They are broken down into an easy-to-read format. The illustrations are fabulous. Everything you’d want in an action-packed comic book.
We sat down to read them one evening. Each volume has three individual stories and I started going over the various titles. My daughter stopped me immediately.
Which stories have a girl character in them?
That's how we turned first to volume two. “League of Incredible Vegetables” and “LarryBoy and the Reckless Ruckus.” Followed by volume one's "LarryBoy and the Prideosaurus."
We divvied up reading the various characters in the stories. It probably goes without saying my daughter chose to read all the girls’ lines. I read the rest, all too happy to use my best accent when reading the lines of the French Peas.
I don’t know. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Finally, we got to the stories with no girls in them. Mini crisis. Insert girl drama.
Thankfully, she decided she could read Larry the Cucumber’s lines. Sweet pickle that she is.
