Children’s Books | Peter the Potato | The Food ABC
How terribly grumpy is Peter! His glass is always half full, until a mistaken party invitation brings him face-to-face with Pablo the Potato, whose equally grumpy demeanour shines a light on Peter’s own negativity. Did fate bring them together? Or did an optimistic friend hatch a plan to show these two potatoes the sunnier side of life?
The Food ABC aims to impart fun and engaging lessons about health, happiness and friendship to primary school children through the colourful character Adrian the Apple and his band of friends. Each book teaches a valuable and positive life lesson. The books make great bedtime stories.

Storytelling by Author
The author can be booked to conduct storytelling sessions of The Food ABC children’s books at schools, libraries and clubs as well as at children’s birthday parties, free of charge! Click here to reserve your slot!
Christina takes half an hour to read each story accompanied by projected images of the book’s illustrations, all hand-drawn by the author herself. In the remaining 30 minutes of each session, Christina entertains the flurry of questions she gets from her highly engaged junior audiences. The author is happy to stay for photographs and sit for a book-signing session to personally autograph her children’s books and present them to each child.
“I’m always completely overwhelmed by the children’s enthusiasm at each reading,” says Christina. “They are all very keen to speak up, ask questions and give comments – so many in fact that it can be a happy challenge to get through the story in one session!”
