The printed version’s discounted price is only $12.75 (regularly $16.95) and is available directly from the Seasons Studios website.
The theme of 'Count Broccula' is “Eat your vegetables before they eat you!” This comic tale is about a young boy who overcomes his fear of eating vegetables, especially broccoli. Written and illustrated by Neil Osborn, the printed version includes a foreword, recipes, and planting tips by Dr. Elson Haas. At the end of the app, you take a walk with him in his happy garden and learn the names and shapes of his newly found Veggie Friends. For ages 4 and up.

“Using humor, 'Count Broccula' delivers positive messages to children about eating correctly,” said Seasons Studios Co-Founder and CEO Elson Haas, MD. “These special offers are our way of joining many others today in celebrating the wonderful health benefits of eating broccoli.” Co-Founder Bethany Argisle adds, “You don’t have to be a vegetarian to love broccoli; you can be a 'Broccolitarian' and eat it with everything.”
“Getting kids to eat their vegetables is a challenge most parents face, 'Count Broccula' is a fun adventure for both kids and adults and an enjoyable way to promote healthy eating habits while learning about broccoli and other vegetables,” said Nicole Lundeen, Founder and CEO of RipplFX, Inc.
