King Fritz wanted his people to enjoy a new wonder plant, the potato. But people don't enjoy being told what to eat, so they pushed him away. But once he had his guards watch the potatoes they started to wonder what could be so special? He told his guards to go easy at night, hoping his people would steal the potatoes, and to this day is honored for his lasting contribution to the everyday kitchen. ( )

The Potato King is the story of how King Fritz tricked his nation into accepting the potato into their diets and overall culture. I found this story thoroughly enjoyable- from the unique art style to the hilarious narrative. This book is perfect for introducing the idea that history can be interesting and funny. ( )
