Vernon the Vegetable Man
When Marvin was having trouble keeping up with the other boys on the basketball court, he wanted to give up. During his walk home, he thought he was approaching an ice cream truck. He soon learned it was a vegetable truck ran by Vernon the Vegetable Man.
When Marvin expressed his concerns about his challenges on the court, Vernon was one of his mentors and biggest support system when it came to eating better, exercising, and improving his game. By the end of the summer Marvin became the star of the basketball court.
Vernon the Vegetable Man is a children's book that focuses on motivating kids to eat healthy, exercise, and set goals.
