Description

"It's not all mulch and sunshine out there."

When Little Sweet Potato rolls away from his patch, he is forced to search for a new home. He stumbles upon some very mean plants on his journey and begins to wonder if maybe he is too lumpy and bumpy to belong anywhere. Will Little Sweet Potato ever find a home that's just right for him?

Amy Beth Bloom and Noah Z. Jones have created a funny and timeless tale about appreciating one's self, lumps and bumps and all, and finding a community that takes all kinds.
