They didn’t know why the refrigerator light kept going on and off much to their amazement. Each vegetable votes on a reason as Mr. Cobb, the chairperson, and Tom, the co-chairperson conduct the meeting.

“Tom and Mr. Cobb were inspired during a trip to South Carolina visiting my family. Upon arrival at the train station in South Carolina, I needed to rent a car. The driver that picked me up was named Kermit. We started talking, and I mentioned that I had written some children’s books. Kermit then shared with me that he had submitted a book to a publisher about vegetables having a town meeting in the refrigerator. He and I began talking more, and through that talk, I was inspired to write to Tom and Mr. Cobb.”
