Noura is crazy about watermelon. She wants to eat nothing else, every day, at every meal. In fact, Noura thinks there is no such thing as too much watermelon. Until one night, when the watermelon she has hidden in her room to eat all by herself begins to grow and Noura get taken on a wild watermelon adventure!

A story that can be the springboard for a discussion on favorite foods, eating a balanced diet, sharing with others and trying new foods.
