Editorial Reviews

Review

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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by this duo!
By Kristen on November 11, 2020
I absolutely love these authors and this collection. I was so excited when I saw the duo was coming out with another book and preordered it immediately and it did not disappoint. I immediately shared it with my kindergarten class but also my 3rd grade student I mentor and it was enjoyed by all. A great message presented in a clear fun way for kids with a little bit of humor for the adults too!

5.0 out of 5 stars another hit !!!!
By Patty on November 25, 2020
We look forward to the arrival of each and every Jory John book, these wonderful stories always showcases Jory's unique ability to relate with young children in a way that keeps us coming back for more. Not only is eating snacks and playing board games a daily event at our house but a comfortable slouch on the couch ends most days. If Sophia could rename her dog I am sure he would end up being called King Tater! BTW..... tater tots have become a real favorite!
