There is NOTHING boring about being a kid, but one little girl is going to have to prove it in this anything-but-boring picture book from comedian Michael Ian Black.
Just when a little girl thinks she couldn't possibly be more bored, she stumbles upon a potato who turns the tables on her by declaring that children are boring. But this girl isn't going to let a vegetable tell her what's what, so she sets out to show the unimpressed potato all the amazing things kids can do. Too bad the potato is anything but interested...
This tongue-in-cheek twist on a familiar topic is sure to entertain anyone who's ever been bored -- or had to hear about someone else being bored -- and is filled with comedian Michael Ian Black's trademark dry wit, accompanied by charismatic illustrations from newcomer Debbie Ridpath Ohi.

"Black keeps this simple concept funny all the way through its final, LOL zinger. Debut illustrator Ohi’s minimalist, scraggly digital drawings are anything but boring, and speak volumes about irritation, desperation, and disdain." -- Publisher's Weekly
The girl "demonstrates cartwheels, ninja kicks and imagination games -- lion taming; dragons and swords; forcing the potato to walk a pirate-ship plank -- all of which Ohi sketches in pale blue." -- Kirkus Reviews
