Benji & The 24 Pound Banana Squash is about Benji who plants squash seeds he saved from the summer before in the back of the garden. He carefully waters them, but for awhile, nothing happens. Then suddenly one day, tiny sprouts start pushing through the soil and Benji begins to see his hard work pay off. When the gigantic banana squash is ready to be harvested, Benji's dad weighs the vegetable – twenty-four pounds! – and takes a picture of Benji with it. But the best part comes when Benji's mom cooks the squash with butter and brown sugar, so everyone in the family can gather and enjoy a delicious feast.
