One Potato Review

Nothing fancy here: Big Trouble is represented by trucks pulling up out of nowhere and “REALLY big men! Eight feet tall, or nine or ten.” Then boxing – of rocks, and baseball uniforms, and Spy Stuff, and Secret Stuff and all the stuff that defines Home. Wherever that is. Karas has visited this subject before (in Home on the Bayou: A Cowboy’s Story) and his illustrations convey the scale – and helplessness – of someone very small confronting the facts of relocation in a big, and usually welcoming, world.
