The Potato Man
By Megan McDonald; illustrated by Ted Lewin.
Don’t miss this1991 publication of The Potato Man by Megan McDonald, a book illustrated by Ted Lewin. Thing is, be sure to have some potatoes on hand before you read this book. That way you can hold them up and wave them in the air as you join the Potato man when he calls out while making his rounds. This book is told through the eyes of a child and has so much to offer: what’s right and what’s wrong; temptation and guilt; forgiveness and accepting each other’s differences. But what does a broken window have to do with it? Well that piece of bad luck was strike two. You’ll have to read the book to find out about strike three…. Cheers.
