Read this one at story time today (upper elementary kids) and they loved it. Had them laughing with every potato pun and melodramatic turn. ( )

A story of supply and demand, consumer greed, forgiveness, and...pants for potatoes.
Very funny. ( )

When Lance Vance's Fancy Pants Store announces that they will be selling potato pants, our tuber hero is ecstatic, having always wanted a pair. When he gets to the store however, he discovers that Eggplant, who pushed by him the other day, landing him a trash can, is in the store. Holding back, lest he be assaulted again, Potato watches all of his compatriots getting pants, until they are all gone. Or are they? When he finally works up the courage to go into the store, and winds up confronting Eggplant, he makes a surprise discovery...

With its alliterative text and lots of excited speech bubbles, I can see Potato Pants! making an excellent read-aloud at story-time, particularly for those young listeners who appreciate a silly sense of humor in their tales. My own funny bone, which is sometimes difficult to reach, wasn't really tickled here, but I can see that Laurie Keller's book will have appeal for many young children. I appreciated the message about forgiveness that is worked into the story, and think the bright, expressive artwork will keep many youngster's attention. Recommended to readers looking for new picture-books featuring madcap adventures and a silly sense of humor. ( )
