"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
