Winner of the Vermont Red Clover Award

A Pennsylvania Young Readers Choice Award Nominee
A Minnesota Star of the North Picture Book Nominee

A manic tale that's going to be very hard to read without inducing "peels" of laughter . . . Keller constructs an alliteration-rich narrative using plenty of exclamation points and big type in multiple colors to crank the volume up even further. It's potato pandemonium, any way you slice it. --Booklist, starred review

There's plenty of silly illustrations and attractive potato pants to keep chuckling readers turning pages to the end.--The New York Times

A high-energy read with plenty of kid appeal.--Kirkus Reviews

The story by Keller, buoyed by her kinetic mixed-media compositions (including potato stamps), blends humor and a theme of forgiveness.--Publishers Weekly
