One potato, two potato, three potato…. Four!
We’re the funny potatoes who could ask for more?
Four Funny Potatoes by Len Foley is a story of four funny potatoes. Actually, one of them is a banana. But for some weird reason, everyone considers him as a potato. He tries to convince everybody that he is neither pudgy nor round. He has his own shape, own colour, own thought and own mind. How can these fools call him a fat potato? But who listens to his gibberish. The zucchini declares him as a yellow zucchini.

When all this fuss is going on, a fat guy comes into the drama. As expected, he loves to eat, especially ripe bananas. While everybody is running to his horror, Benny goes straight into his mouth (Benny is the name of the banana). But Benny isn’t destined to rest in peace as his friends wrote on his grave, “R.I.P Benny, Beloved Potato”.

I don’t know if I have a childish mind, but I loved this book. From the graphics to the funny rhymes, everything was perfect. This is a very good bedtime story. What stood out to me in the book was the vivid graphics. They are bright, shiny and conspicuous. All the characters are drawn in a funny way that draws the attention of a child. Also, the story is quite funny.

Technically, the book is exceptionally well-edited. I couldn’t find a single typo. Actually, it’s hard to find typos in a short book like this. It’s only 28 pages long and the pages contain only 4-5 lines of the rhyme. If we sum that up, it won’t even fill up a single page of a regular book.

I didn’t dislike anything about this book. So I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars . This book entertained me and made me laugh. Hence, the rating is appropriate. I recommend this book to kids as well as adults who have kids in their home. I recommend buying a hardcover version of the book since a PDF or Kindle version won’t be as attractive to a kid as the hardcover version.

I read that book and enjoyed it a lot. I liked the vivid colours and illustrations. The theme of uniqueness was delivered in a very good way.
Thanks a lot for the review Sunnyroyish☺

I'm glad you enjoyed the book so much and your enthusiasm is truly contagious. Having a "childish mind", as you name it, can be a quality: it's amazing to still be able to laugh at the simpler things in life. I agree that kids would enjoy a hardcover much more, as sensory experiences are very important at a young age.
Thanks for such a happy review!
