I received a complimentary copy of Angry Potato Man from Natascha Taylor – author/illustrator – in return for an honest review. At first glance the reader might assume that this is just another Picture Book. Yet, this is not the case at all, because the author gives much attention to detail. For example, her illustrations are imaginative, ‘alive’, clear and colourful, done against various bright backgrounds, and will appeal to young children. They show how the jellybellies – a lovely, memorable name – do their best to get Angry Potato Man to smile. Day after day the jellybellies try different things, but to no avail. After all sorts of tricks, the jellybellies admit defeat, except for one. He tries something different and finally there’s a positive result!
Producing a good Picture Book has many challenges and for the greater part the author has done an excellent job. Had the story been written in rhyme it would have been perfect in my opinion. Hence, a solid four stars from me and recommended as a worthwhile read.
