When readers tire of comforting bedtime tales, they can revel in this trio of darkly funny vegetable comics from a French team making their U.S. debut. In the first, leeks in a garden bed fall for a smooth-talking cow that convinces them that she is one of Santas reindeer. The leeks dont believe their ears. Right there, smiling at them over their fence, is one of Santas reindeer! The cow explains that she is headed home: If you want, Ill take you with me! The leeks line up eagerly, and the narrator bids them goodbye (Theyll return from the adventure changed, no doubt) as they march right into the cows open mouth. In the second tale, the gardens snarky carrots (Those leeks are so stupid!) plot to escape and tunnel into a rabbit warrenoops! In the third, Romeo the leek falls in love with Julienne the carrot (get it?), and the leeks and the carrots feud. Vegetables who feud make tasty soup, readers learn. While its not for the tenderhearted, mischief-minded children will howl with laughter. Ages 69. (Feb.)
