About the book

Grape and Mushroom are best friends, but they can’t play together because the Fruit and the Vegetables just can’t stop fighting. Their only hope to sort out this situation is to visit the Wise Old Cheese on the Top Shelf of the fridge – something never managed before. When they complete their difficult journey they find a cheese that is sleepy and smelly! However Wise Old Cheese in all his mouldy glory comes to help and peace is established between the fruit and vegetables.
