From School Library Journal
Looking for a spud-tacular read? Starch here. — Kirkus Reviews
From the writer and illustrator of The Bad Seed (2017), The Good Egg (2019), and The Cool Bean (2019), this picture book certainly has a point to make, but it does so with disarming wit and abundant charm. — Booklist
[T]his tale is timely and helps make the point that a balance of technology and old-school fun might be the way to go. A goofy story about the dangers of too much of one thing, and a lighthearted lesson for all. — School Library Journal
Text and illustrations are packed with humor. — Horn Book Magazine
A stylish and witty picture book. — Sunday Times (London)

I also thought it was a good read especially after codvid. I think it’s a great point of view for a younger perspective to get them out of the house again!
