Boris the Tomato by Alex Martin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Boris lives in a greenhouse in Kent, along with many other tomatoes and vegetables. One evening, when the weather is overwhelmingly hot and stuffy, all the inhabitants of the greenhouse get on edge, and it is in this bad climate that Boris, the biggest and cleverest of the tomatoes, hatches his dastardly plan. Most of the plants think that the tomatoes are as thick as two short planks, but Boris is going to change all that - his plan is to take over the greenhouse with the help of all the tomato plants, and then take over the whole world! It is a daring plan and involves many plots and goings-on, much to the consternation of the other plants. In fact, Boris's plan turns out to be so successful that, in the end, it is his undoing as well - for proud Boris, there is the inevitable fall '! This is a story everyone will enjoy as it makes its funny but very pertinent points, and Jonathan Hills' witty illustrations add to the fun.
