About the Author

Laurie Keller is the acclaimed author-illustrator of Do Unto Otters, Arnie, the Doughnut, The Scrambled States of America, and Open Wide: Tooth School Inside, among numerous others. She grew up in Muskegon, Michigan, and always loved to draw, paint and write stories. She earned a B.F.A. at Kendall College of Art and Design, then worked at Hallmark as a greeting card illustrator for seven-and-a-half years, until one night she got an idea for a children's book. She quit her job, moved to New York City, and soon had published her first book. She loved living in New York, but she has now returned to her home state, where she lives in a little cottage in the woods on the shore of Lake Michigan.

Reviews

A Junior Library Guild Selection
A Booklist Best Book of the Year
A Vermont Red Clover Award Master List Selection

"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
