Two Old Potatoes and Me

by John Coy
Illustrated by Carolyn Fisher

One Potato Review

When life gives you two old potatoes… grow sixty-seven new ones. This is a story about the making the best of a tough situation, divorce in this case, although to this author’s immeasurable credit, both daughter and father spend more of their time together weeding and worrying about the stuff they can prepare against (potato beetles, drought) than the unhappiness that resulted in their separation. With splashy, busy pictures by Carolyn Fisher. Hopeful. Believable. Fresh.
