One Potato Review
Never listen to little birds. From the creator of Martha, the blabbermouth dog, here is an arguably more soulful (if less crowd-pleasing) canine, content to watch the sunset from his “magical” screen porch (“Where else can you be inside and outside at the same time?”) until a feathered little troublemaker invites him to consider whether that’s all there really is. Not everyone makes a great tourist (“That’s a lot of sand,” he says about the desert), and very soon this prodigal wolf is back knocking on doors, and running with forks, and generally giving a pretty poor account of himself to all of the rabbits who have multiplied in his absence - and whom Wolf is obliged to win over. Because that is community, like it or not, regardless the price of square footage. With wraparound views, and solutions.
