garden growing on thumb... what's the book?
by Gordon Child
Gaston's Ghastly Green Thumb
I have searched and searched and can't seem to find this story.
It's about a boy who used to push vegetables on to his fork using his thumb (and people would tell him he shouldn't).
It somehow made his thumb start to grow a garden, and there were drawings of this boy dragging this garden on his thumb with him to school.
I remember hearing this story when I was little, and it got me to use my knife instead of my thumb from then on.
Does anyone know what this story is? I seem to think it was Shel Silverstein but haven't been able to find it.
