Anyone remember what those books were called from the 80s/90s?

I remember reading a set of books which were written and illustrated by a little girl all about characters who were fruit (and possibly veg as well??). I thought they were called The Munch Bunch, but have had a look on Amazon and the search brings up a completely different set of books written by a bloke called Giles.

Does anyone know what I'm going on about and know what they are called?

Oops don't know where Suzy Tomato came from Blush but they were my favourites when I was wee. What a blast from the past, you've cheered me right up after a crappy week thank you!

Wow, I remember the Garden Gang, they were ladybird books and I was so impressed they were written by a child.

I think it was the same as the munch bunch tv programme, I watched this with kids I was minding as maybe a bit older than you guys, lol. The signature tune is still in my head now. Thanks for the memory.

The munch bunch, are on their way.
The munch bunch are here to stay.
The munch bunch have found a place
with a garden. etc

Something like this, anyway.

I wonder what happened to the girl who wrote them.....and more importantly did they make her a shed load of money?

I just googled and it brought this up. MN, font of all knowledge.
