The Pet Potato
Author: Josh Lacey; illustrated by Momoko Abe
Jory John meets Sophie's Squash in this delightful, offbeat, and hilarious picture book, The Pet Potato, about finding companionship in unlikely places.
Potatoes can't do anything a pet should. They can't learn tricks, or go for walks, or snuggle up with Albert.
But to Albert's surprise, his potato begins to grow on him, and soon he can't imagine having any other pet.
When the potato begins to rot, Albert is devastated. He buries it in his garden, and with a lot of care and a bit of patience, he discovers that his potato can do a great trick after all . . .
Josh Lacey and Momoko Abe have created a delightful, offbeat picture book about finding companionship in unlikely places.
