If you’re not from Upstate New York, you may not have heard of salt potatoes or the most famous salt potato, Pepper. Pepper the Salt Potato was planning a visit to the New York State Fair with friends Jam the Jelly Jar, Snap the Pickle, and of course, Phil the Paper Bag. There’s one problem. Pepper could find any excuse not to take a bath because potatoes like dirt. Despite the friends’ efforts to get Pepper ready for the contest, Pepper wanted to stay dirty. He chanted his mantra, “I am who I am!” What are the chances Pepper will win a trophy for Best Potato of the Year at the State Fair?
What a fun little read about a potato and his friends who take a trip to the county fair. A jam jar, pickle, and paper bag try to convince Pepper the potato to take a bath before going to the fair but like most kids who live in the dirt, he thinks he is just fine. This is a very fun book that is wonderful to read out loud for both adults and children. There are some difficult words to sound out for the younger set but once they break down the syllables, everything gets easier. The story is accompanied by wonderful illustrations to emphasize each point of the story. This is something I can imagine being made into a short film.
