It is hard for me to review such a short and sweet book without spoilers, but I will try my level best. Four Funny Potatoes by Len Foley is a hilarious and educational experience for toddlers and beginners. The author introduces various vegetables and fruits in a convincingly funny way that is quite enjoyable for kids that age. I can guarantee that this book may be used as an educational material for kids aged around 2-5. For younger kids, this is a good bedtime story. It is a real laugh for older kids (including me!) and I salute the author’s imagination.

There claim to be four potatoes that sit quietly in a bowl all day but put on a show at night. With the help of other vegetables, they have a lot of fun. While three potatoes are explaining their antics, the fourth one declares that it is not a potato. The lines rhyme wonderfully and it is a comedic account of how vegetables have fun. The skills that the vegetables, fruits and other items (which I assume to be in either a refrigerator or the kitchen) showcase are quite entertaining and fascinating in a “The Night at the Museum” style. The depiction is very creative and attracts the reader.

I had not enjoyed Sigfried’s Smelly Socks by the same author that much, but this was quite a delight. Perhaps if I was at an appropriate age for it, I would have enjoyed it even more. Description of each vegetable in a poetic fashion is sure to entertain young kids and it is enjoyable for parents who could read it for bedtime stories. What I liked the most about it was its educational nature. I am sure readers would enjoy it whilst learning.

Without a second thought, I award this book 4 out of 4 stars. It is short, sweet and funny; perfect for cute toddlers and a refreshing break for all ages as well. There are lines describing potatoes, tomatoes, jelly beans, watermelons, zucchinis, eggheads, grapes, fries and of course the suspense lies in the one item which claims that it is not a potato though it is grouped in that type.

I hope the readers like this book. From the bottom of my heart, I wish the author success in all future endeavors. I hope and pray that more and more books of this fashion emerge and provide us a rich reading experience.
