There’s nothing like hot potatoes on a cold night... So big sister Maybelle takes her brothers, Jack and Eddie, to gather spuds from Mr. Kenney’s field and surprise Ma with something delicious. But after an unforgettable moonlight adventure, surprises are in store for everyone... Newberry Medalist Karen Hesse has crafted a heartwarming narrative, filled with stunning images. Wendy Watson’s warm, glowing artwork is a perfect complement to a story that overflows with love, integrity, and down-home family values.
