Doodler, Todd H., One Potato, Two Potato. PICTURE BOOK. Simon & Schuster. 2013. $14.99.
Mr. Potato is having a party and all of his friends are invited. But as his guests begin to arrive, his party becomes a bit too crowded. As more potatoes arrive, they start to push and shove. And just like that, the potatoes became mashed! Sad, I know. But this book has a happy ending! Now that the potatoes are all mashed, there is plenty of room at the party!
What a fun book! Doodler takes the classic children’s game “One Potato, Two Potato” and gives it a hilarious twist. The story as a fantastic rhythm and rhyme, and the illustrations are just as goofy as the story! It’s impossible to read this book without getting down right silly, and my little one thinks it’s a riot. This is a must have on any bookshelf.
