    My daughter adores this book. I gave it to her for Christmas and it?s been the bedtime choice 3 days in a row since. It?s funny, the kind of funny that?s accessible even to perceptive preschoolers- unibrows & sly jokes about rear ends. ...

    I don't think I liked this book quite as much as I should have - I LOVED the "be yourself" message, because it was presented in such a positive way. But I think it definitely loses a lot of its....legitimacy? When you see the judges. So it's about being yourself, but also about knowing...

    I bought this for my son for Valentine's Day. I decided to read it without him lol. I loved the message that you should just be yourself. The artwork was very cute and I loved it when he said, "Then I showed them my best side." They showed a picture of his mutant potato rump. Totally a...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I can?t wait to read this book aloud to my students. Some books just beg to be read aloud. This is one of them. ...

    Adorable art, but some disappointing messaging here with the twist. The emphasis purely on appearance was disheartening. ...

    Cute is as cute does! But will Rot, the mutant potato, measure up on the cuteness scale when he enters a cuteness contest? This whimsical, silly, funny story, with perfectly matching illustrations, is sure to provoke laughter all the way to its cheeky end! ...

    If I was still in the library I would absolutely purchase this book and read it out loud to every class in the school from K to grade 7. Not only is it hilarious and sweet, it?s got a surprise ending that includes an important message about how beauty is defined. If you don?t fall ...

    Slightly irreverent and some kids may like it just for that. Not sure it would lead to discussion of competition, but maybe. ...

    I enjoyed most things about this book. Rot is a fun character who enjoys being himself, but when faced with a cute bunny, cuddly kitten, and peppy jellyfish he decides to try to be more. When that doesn't work out he struts out onto the stage as the one and only ROT THE CUTEST IN THE W...

    Rot has so much to offer readers. First up, honesty. Yes it?s okay to like to win, yes we all compare ourselves to others and yes we all have considered doing something we are not supposed to. Then there?s Rot?s joy of being who he is regardless of how he measured up to others. A...

    It?s a must-share with every child. Hopefully, even teens will get the message. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Rot, a mutant potato show us that well in Ben Clanton?s story. He?s a happy mutant potato and when he sees the sign for ?The Cutest In The World? contest...

    Very funny read. Definitely reminds me of an "Elephant and Piggie" book in its humor and style, but it's an original story all its own. Rot, the potato, is unique and special. He loves to play in the mud, eat, and play games. One day, he decides to enter a "Cutest in the World" contest...

    LMAO!!!!! Literally. I enjoyed this book so much that I posted on Facebook and Instagram. These pictures are cute and funny like a horror show. The story was tragic and hilarious. This would be fun as a storytime, with a fun craft. It can also be an important teaching moment as well. T...

    A nice variation on "the ugly duckling" in which, in the end, Rot decides he likes himself for whom he is instead of growing up to be beautiful. I mean, honestly, who grows up to be beautiful anyway? Not me, that's for sure. ...

    This is a funny book that does a great job of showing the "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" message. Rot is a mutant potato, which is sure to appeal to some kids. Fans of bunnies, kittens and jellyfish might also like this book. Kids enjoyed it. It's appropriate for prescho...

    This is one of our new favorites! Rot, a mutant potato, decides to enter a "Cutest in the World" contest against typically cute animals who are disgusted by him. He tries to become more like the other animals (much to their disgust) but eventually decides to be himself. My daughter ...
