The photographs of plump fruits, the pictures of healthy and strong vegetables, the information illustrated with colour pencil sketches, the practical advice, the feel-good message all combine into a very reassuring tone of ‘everything will be alright’. The voice of the Diggers gently soothe you to sleep.
