This delightful board book will make the little ones in your life giggle at the absurdity of a fly on the phone and a carrot in the tub. The text's repeated asking Have you ever seen…? preceding the refrain No way! will have toddlers yelling "No way!" themselves as you read through these silly situations. Celebrated artist Elise Gravel brings the silly to a new level in A Potato on a Bike, because really, has anyone ever seen a broccoli counting to ten or a sausage reading a book? But wait, how about a...baby being tickled?! Uh-oh, I think the answer for that is—yes way!

Publishers Weekly
“The simple call and response is made for young readers fond of the absurd, and the list of silly queries all lead up to a concluding 'YES WAY!' that highlights the joy of further laughter.”
CM: Canadian Review of Materials
“Gravel definitely knows how to make little ones and adults giggle during story time!...Could easily be enjoyed by older children who enjoy rambunctious, interactive story time and a lot of laughter.”
Quill & Quire, starred review
★ “Simple but versatile, wacky yet charming, the board-book world is lucky Gravel came to play.”
Resource Links
“Mixture of fun and nonsense with lively illustrations will entertain toddlers with this repetitive romp.”
