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.

Have you ever heard your child utter the infamous words "I'm bored"? In this funny and charming picture book a young girl confronts her boredom head on by attempting to convince a very unimpressed potato that kids are not boring! I read this book at storytime and the kids were in stitches anytime the potato said "BORING!"

Every try to impress a picky potato? Not an easy feat. Explore the thinks that kids can do and you won't be bored anymore.

A great book. It's not often a 4 year old and a 6 year old can both sit down and enjoy a story together so much.

The most dreadful words to hear as a parent! This hilarious book with excellent illustrations makes kids laugh...and think again about being bored.
