Reviews Rot, the Cutest in the World!

  • Anie
    This had to be one of the funniest pictures books I saw all year. And the end message is loving yourself for who you are.
  • Sarah Wilson
    Two words: Potato butt. 'Nuf said. :)
  • Kristen
    My daughter adores this book. I gave it to her for Christmas and it’s been the bedtime choice 3 days in a row since. It’s funny, the kind of funny that’s accessible even to perceptive preschoolers- unibrows & sly jokes about rear ends.

    A nice variation on "the ugly duckling" in which, in the end, Rot decides he likes himself for whom he is instead of growing up to be beautiful. I mean, honestly, who grows up to be beautiful anyway? Not me, that's for sure.

    Cute is as cute does! But will Rot, the mutant potato, measure up on the cuteness scale when he enters a cuteness contest? This whimsical, silly, funny story, with perfectly matching illustrations, is sure to provoke laughter all the way to its cheeky end!

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I can’t wait to read this book aloud to my students. Some books just beg to be read aloud. This is one of them.
  • Seema Rao
    An amusing and light picture book about a rotten potato hoping to win cutest in the world.
  • Lynn
    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and so is cuteness. I can see how this will appeal to some young readers.
