Bad Apple and Second Banana terrorize the other food items in the fridge. After a streak of bullying, Good Egg finally confronts the pair and is picked on himself. Taking a different approach, Good Egg decides to invite Bad Apple to play a game of capture the flag with the other produce. Bad Apple is taken by surprise and is very excited to be included by everyone else. In the end, everyone has a good time and the bullying ends.

Good Egg and Bad Apple offers a positive (though not always effective) way to deal with bullies. It also has A LOT of idioms, puns, and other word play. While this word play is fun, the sheer amount of it is a bit overwhelming especially for younger readers where much of it might go over their heads. Upper elementary students or students who are learning English may be a better audience for diving in to the idioms and understanding the fun of the text.
