Who is Sweet Potato? Strange as it may seem, this is the name of a very young owl, the delightful protagonist of Sweet Potato by Susan Marie Chapman. She is a rebel because, unlike her two brothers, she does not eat crawly critters (she likes sweet potatoes and mango) and does not want to sleep during the day as owls are supposed to do. While her family sleeps, Sweet Potato visits Uncle Grumpy, an iguana who has known her since she was born. She dreams that, when she grows up, she would like to be like him. How will Sweet Potato's adventure turn out?

Susan Marie Chapman's Sweet Potato is a pleasant and entertaining story that will fascinate many young readers. In fact, many children dream of behaving in a different way from the other people around them, just like Sweet Potato does. It is a lot of fun to read what this young owl likes to do because she is an unusual and original character; it is a pleasure to be in her company. I enjoyed reading about her bizarre food preferences and why this started. It will be easy for many children to sympathize with Sweet Potato. Like many of them, the young owl must learn that her parents' advice is for her own good. For all these reasons, I recommend Sweet Potato to children looking for the company of a funny and out-of-the-ordinary protagonist. I think that many of them will find it easy to identify themselves with her.
