Based on the multi-award-winning book written by Danny Schnitzlen and illustrated by Matthew Faulkner, "The Monster Who Ate My Peas" tells the funny and poignant story of a young boy who does not want to eat his peas. He makes a deal with a funny monster and trades things for the monster to eat his peas for him. How much is he willing to trade? Maybe it's better to just eat the peas.
