About this title


This children's picture book is a cumulative story adapted from the Russian folktale The Giant Turnip. In this version, Ma Farmer has a hankering for some sweet potato pie. But the sweet potato she has planted is too big to pull up, even with the help of just about every animal on the farm, from Pa Farmer, to Bessie Cow, to Ralphie the Dog, to Kittie Cat. Can Lily Mouse be the one to solve the problem? A page of fun facts and a sweet potato pie recipe are included.

From the Inside Flap:

"I am delighted to find this precious story full of vivid characters and beautiful art. Children will enjoy the story and be encouraged to have delicious fun in the kitchen, especially with the wonderfully nutritious sweet potato!"
--Holly Clegg, spokesperson for the Louisiana Sweet Potato Commission and author of the Trim & Terrific cookbook series

"A charming tale, cooked up with Southern sass. Made to be read aloud and savored."
--Bruce Hale, author of Snoring Beauty and the Chet Gecko series

"Dianne de Las Casas has crafted another wonderfully funny and lively story. This tasty cumulative tale of the efforts of Ma and Pa Farmer and their animal helpers to harvest the humongous title vegetable begs to be read aloud. When a last-minute assist comes from an unexpected quarter, the bountiful sweet potato yields delicious rewards for the characters and reader or listener as well. Another winner from a talented writer and storyteller. The text is perfectly complemented by Marita Gentry's droll artwork, while Fun Facts and a scrumptious recipe for Ma Farmer's Sweet Potato Pie make for a truly satisfying experience."
--Robert D. San Souci, author of The Talking Eggs

When Ma Farmer tries to pull up the gigantic sweet potato in her garden, it's a recipe for disaster. The sweet potato is stuck! So Ma grabs Pa and the fun begins. This delicious dish of a tale includes Ma Farmer's secret recipe for sweet potato pie. Mmm, mmm, mmm.
