Young Talia's grandmother asks her to go to the garden and bring back seven root vegetables for a stew to welcome Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Hearing "rude vegetables," Talia wonders what they are. She digs up each requested vegetable but when it seems "perfect," she puts it aside in a basket. When it doesn'tlike the ornery onion that will not pull upshe decides it is "rude" and puts it in the pot for the stew. This is also the fate of the show-off garlic, the twisted carrot, the terrible turnip, the lumpy potatoes, the ugly parsnip, and the "rude-abagas." Talia takes the basket with the good vegetables she found to the rabbi, who will give them to a family for a sweet New Year. Her grandmother laughs at Talia's mistake as they prepare for the New Year holiday together, but is glad that she has helped the hungry. Assirelli visualizes the simple text in simplified, solid forms. Talia is shown on the cover in a solid brown garden, pulling at the tops of a huge carrot. There is a stillness to the clear blue sky and unadorned house with a row of flowers in front. Talia's sketchy face hardly changes expression as she is frequently dwarfed by the vegetables. Readers should enjoy the sly humor and may be tempted to try the included recipe for "Rude Vegetable Stew."
