The Day the Banana Went Bad
Michelle Robinson & Tom Knight
The Day the Banana Went Bad is a day of protest. Bad Banana’s peeling, feeling hurt and hopping made when he’s thrown into the ‘reject’ bin. So what can he do? Could behaving badly be the way to speak up? He runs riot, rallying ‘all his dustibin friends‘ and crying ‘Different isn’t bad.- it’s GOOD!’ Thereafter, Banana calls all the reject fruit into a supermarket trolley, ripping off their labels and protesting around the supermarket! However, could the supermarket surveillance camera halt the protest in its flight? What will Banana and chums do when they’re ordered to ‘Stop Right There!’
We know and love Michelle Robinson’s hilarious picture books. She seems to have an unerring knack of finding stories within the most unlikely situations from Ten Fat Sausages to Chicken Nugget. Furthermore her storytelling is ingenious and ripe (never over-ripe) with rich rhyme and curiosity. Bookwagon is delighted to welcome The Day the Banana Went Bad aboard.
