Buy this Book!

by sandymason on Apr 26, 2007

I'm not kidding. If you have children or grandchildren between the ages of 0 and 10, you want to buy this book! I confess I would read this book aloud to myself if I didn't have kids to read it to. The rhyme scheme veers wildly from page to page, building excitement and suspense as the brave potatoes plot to outwit the nefarious Chef Hackemup. ("One by one he nabs them, one by one he burlap bags them...") This book begs to be read aloud with an abundance of overacting. The illustrations are a bit dark and murky--perhaps evocative of the damp midwestern soil that birthed the book's protagonists--but perfectly in keeping with the high drama of the verse. "We will never be potpie! We will never be potluck! We will never be frittata! We will always be potatoes!"
