Mr. Crum's Potato Predicament by Anne Renaud

- Is It Possible The Best Cook Around . . . 

Can't Please A Customer? -

Before reading the first words of this story it states,
"The story you are about to saver is a fictional tale with a helping of truth.”
This fun story features George Crum, someone who loves to cook so much that he opens a restaurant. There he cooks to his heart’s content and his customers devour his wonderful food. Many even consider him to be the best book in the county.

But one day Filbert P. Horsefeathers comes in and wants to order potatoes. Just potatoes. Nothing more. No problem. George Crum cuts potatoes into wedges, boils them, fries them, and sprinkles a little salt on them.

But is it possible there is a problem after all? Everyone loves George’s creations! Don't they?

Though the front of the book states a fictional tale based on some truth, the back of the book is filled with Author’s Notes about the real George Crum. It also has acknowledgments, and author’s sources, some which might be good if you wish to pursue more information regarding George Crum.

My Thoughts

What Concerned Me:  Nothing

What I Liked Best:  This book would be very good to use when introducing inventions, history, and perseverance. Or it's even a good book if you just love taters!
