Potato Joe

This fresh adaptation of the classic "One Potato, Two Potato" nursery rhyme is a counting adventure and rollicking good time rolled into one. Spunky leader Potato Joe and his nine spuds pals count up to ten and back down again, all while playing games and meeting up with other garden friends.

With its playful tone and hilariously expressive potatoes, Potato Joe is a spud-tastically fun read-aloud, and a perfect companion to Keith Baker's previous nursery rhyme interpretations, Big Fat Hen and Hickory Dickory Dock.

    "This book gets sillier and sillier without ever forsaking its low-key cool, and that's no small potatoes. Readers may think they're in for a rehash of the classic counting rhyme 'One potato, two potato, three potato four.' But Potato Joe and his fellow spuds quickly prove that theirs is no meat-and-potatoes affair; in fact, if it can rhyme with potato, they're all over it: playing tic-tac-toe, spotting a big black crow, holding a rodeo, flirting with saucy Tomato Flo." --Publishers Weekly, starred review
