One Potato Review

This is one of those modest, timeless classics that is nevertheless a little hard to get your hands on, but you know it when you see it. Kind of like its subject: often inconspicuous, sometimes unruly and adversarial, but capable of feats of magic - like calling a boy out to play, and animating clothes on a line, of organizing and disorganizing leaves, and even delivering an apple from higher reaches; you don’t even need friends or para-sails or a ranch in New Mexico to harness it’s power. Oh, and isn’t it nice to see a Spanish face in children’s books that aren’t specifically about being Spanish? With Ets’s Just Me and In The Forest, a book you can read over and over, and always feel included.
