Review: There Was Once a Potato by Ebony Haywood

There Was Once A Potato by Ebony Haywood
Illustrated by Bobbi Switzer
Here's what the book says:

What goes on behind your refrigerator's closed door? All is well on Maple Street. The confident and rather cocky Clamatoe Potato and his pals are chillin' until the one day Alakazam Yam moves in and turns their icebox world upside down...

About the Author:
Ebony Haywood is a poet. In 1996, her poem, There Was Once  a Potato, won first place in the Los Angeles branch of the NAACP ACT-SO poetry competition. She lives in Los Angeles, California, where she is currently working on her next book.
Here's what I say:
What a cute story. The subtle morals and social issues discuss are perfect for today's kids. Peer pressure, cockiness, and meeting new people are all touched upon. It is a great story and my boys loved it. They now make their dinner talk, but it funny to see what they come up with. If you have kids, you will love this book.

You can purchase this book on Amazon.
