The first zucchini of a summer garden is always exciting, but what happens when the plants just keep growing...and growing...and growing? Zora soon finds herself with more zucchini than her family can bake, sauté, or barbecue. Fortunately the ever-resourceful girl comes up with the perfect plan—a garden swap!

Author Katherine Pryor and artist Anna Raff followup with their first book, Sylvia's Spinach, with this playful story of a child who discovers not only the wonder of growing food but the satisfaction of growing a community.

Shelf Awareness, says "Zora's Zucchini satisfies every appetite with its clean, happy storyline and whimsical illustrations." and Tom Watson, EcoConsumer, writes "We’ll never make headway with the pressing environmental issues of our time – such as climate change, community-building and food waste – without brilliant, fun little books like Zora’s Zucchini ." A Whole Kids Foundation Book Club selection for April 2016.

Author Biography

Katherine Pryor made her picture book debut with Sylvia’s Spinach, illustrated by Anna Raff. She is a good food advocate who always liked digging in the dirt, especially when it produced delicious results. A particularly bountiful August harvest in her community garden in Seattle inspired her to write Zora's Zucchini. Learn more about Katherine at katherinepryor.com.

Anna Raff’s children’s books include Sylvia’s Spinach by Katherine Pryor, World Rat Day by J. Patrick Lewis, and Things That Float and Things That Don’t by David Adler. She grew up in Connecticut, where her family had a large garden with an array of vegetables, including kohlrabi, tomatillos, and of course, zucchini. She now lives in a sunny New York City apartment, where she is relegated to raising succulents and cacti. Learn more about Anna at annaraff.com.
