School Library Journal - 10/01/2022 K-Gr 3—Mutant potato brothers Rot and Snot have a competition to decide who is the greatest in the world, to be judged by their little sister, Tot. When neither a potato sack race nor a game of hot potato produces a winner, they have a laugh-off, with an unexpected result. Potato puns abound in "spudtacular" fashion, and Clanton's characters have many more expressions than Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. Enthusiastic early riser Rot is medium-sized and brownish, grumpy Snot is larger and greener, and "super chipper." Tot is the smallest, with yellowish skin and a blue and white polka-dotted bow (which matches the endpapers). Five short chapters, followed by "Spudtacular Facts and Fun," introduce readers to Clanton's new characters, who are just as silly and appealing as Narwhal and Jelly. Back matter includes step-by-step instructions for how to draw Rot. VERDICT An excellent addition where early reader graphic novels are popular (that is, everywhere).—Jenny Arch - Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
