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.

KEITH BAKER has written and illustrated many celebrated picture books, including the Mr. and Mrs. Green easy-reader series. He lives in Seattle, Washington.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—This picture book is based on the familiar nursery rhyme, "One Potato, Two Potato." One by one, 10 potatoes pop out of the ground to experience silly, unrelated things: a big black crow flying over them, being covered in snow, a rodeo. Two fruits, Tomato Flo and Watermelon Moe, join the fun briefly before the potatoes roll back to the garden and "Tally-ho!" into the ground. The fuzzy-edged, childlike illustrations were done in Adobe Photoshop and complement the bouncy tone of the text. This will be fun to share, and even young children will soon have the rhyme committed to memory.—Lee Bock, Glenbrook Elementary School, Pulaski, WI
