Get ready for the giggles!
This delightful board book will make the little ones in your life laugh at the absurdity of a fly on the phone and a carrot in the tub. The text's repeated asking Have you ever seen…? preceding the refrain No way! will have toddlers yelling "No way!" themselves as you read through these silly situations. Celebrated artist Elise Gravel brings the silly to a new level in A Potato on a Bike, because really, has anyone ever seen a broccoli counting to ten or a sausage reading a book? But wait, how about a...baby being tickled?! Uh-oh, I think the answer for that is—yes way!
★ “Simple but versatile, wacky yet charming, the board-book world is lucky Gravel came to play.”

“The simple call and response is made for young readers fond of the absurd, and the list of silly queries all lead up to a concluding 'YES WAY!' that highlights the joy of further laughter.”
