Book Review and Contest: The Potato King
I just read a great book called The Potato King by Christoph Niemann.
This book is about a king who wants his subjects to start eating potatoes so they don’t go hungry. The only problem is, the king’s people haven’t tried potatoes, and they’re not excited by the idea of it!
The king comes up with a plan to get people to try this newly-discovered vegetable, but will it work? Grab a copy of this book at your local library, bookstore or click here to find out!
Or, tell us the name of a food that you’ve recently tried for a chance to WIN a copy of The Potato King!
Include your answer and your name and age in the comments section below.

I tried fish at Grandma’s last week and liked it.
I just tried baked potatoes and loved them
Lorenzo,2 & Amy, 9: We tried salt water taffy and it’s yummy but it’s a special treat.
I tried chopped beet greens and swiss chard on my homemade pizza (I even helped make the dough and grow the vegetables)!
Fresh apricots! It’s been so long since I tried them last I couldn’t remember if I liked them. Horray summer!
I tried quinoa for the first time last weekend. (I am not a fan.) I am as old as potatoes but I would love to win for my kindergarten class. ~ MJ
