Summary[]

Junior and Laura can't wait another millisecond to get to the new Lobster-Land Theme Park. When their trip is delayed - they feel like they might explode. A trip to Treasure Trove Bookstore finds our Veggie friends whirled away to an ancient vessel, in the midst of feisty Roman Peas in a huge rush to get to Rome for the Monster Chariot show. They are led by Ben Hurry, who in his impatience, commands the rowers to increase to Warped Speed. The calamity and chaos of their journey teaches Laura and Junior that they can be happy to wait. We learn that "waiting means being patient, and patience is a gift from God."
