Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato:

"This delightful Irish tale is just perfect for St. Patty's day storytelling." --Children's Book Review Service

"This inspired Irish folktale clearly illustrates that taking the easy way out is sometimes more trouble than it's worth . . . DePaola' s characteristic homespun style and round, childlike faces add plenty of zip to this silly story." --­Publishers Weekly

"Illustrated in dePaola's signature style, this has an inviting look. Buoyant watercolors are framed by thin orange borders . . . An engaging read-aloud choice for St. Patrick's Day." --Booklist

"A cheery picture book, with the artist using the lighter, brighter side of his palette . . . Attractive and amusing." --Kirkus Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Lesson & humor -don’t forgo the side of potato
By Neil Thurlow on March 9, 2021
The book is in true Tomie DePaolo style a little lesson and a little humor. A Leprechaun encourages a poor commoner to take a seed instead of his gold. The commoner plants the seed and becomes overwhelmed with his luck (HUGE potato). He invites the community to bring their plates and carve out some potato for themselves. The conclusion is that the community reaches their “full” of potato and bribe the commoner to never plant the potato again.
