One Potato Review

Isn’t it funny how we use the same word to describe those funny big birds and a McNugget? Hard to know the right time to start talking to your kids about that pork chop, that hamburger, and maybe this isn’t where you’d start. But the call to conscience is pretty clarion here, and also funny, and gracious: even the brutish Farmer Jake ends up falling in love and starting a Tofu company. Certainly there are cringes along the way, but Drescher, as usual, takes a little discomfort and makes it sound important enough to follow all the way to the end. If nothing else, this story offers the satisfaction of an artist with finally enough stature to defy his editors’ better, safer judgement. One of a kind.
