One Potato Review

A cat with a work ethic, and an apron to match. The staging’s the thing: these backgrounds look as though they were assembled by the props department on vacation from “Our Town.” With a tumultuous mouse chase, and a couple of surrealist touches, like family portraits watching on. Punchy and indelible: you could probably read this book as a two-year-old, and always have some residual memory lurking around.
