A Potato on a Bike
Get ready for the giggles!
This delightful board book will make the little ones in your life laugh at the absurdity of a fly on the phone and a carrot in the tub. The text's repeated asking Have you ever seen...? preceding the refrain No way! will have toddlers yelling "No way!" themselves as you read through these silly situations. Celebrated artist Elise Gravel brings the silly to a new level in A Potato on a Bike, because really, has anyone ever seen a broccoli counting to ten or a sausage reading a book? But wait, how about a...baby being tickled?! Uh-oh, I think the answer for that is--yes way!
