THE ODD POTATO

Award winning children’s author, Eileen Bluestone Sherman, began her book writing career with the now classic Hanukkah tale, THE ODD POTATO, originally published by Kar-Ben Copies. Years later, she created with her son, Joshua, a special edition called THE ODD POTATO COLORING BOOK that includes the original story and delightful illustrations children can color.
-----

"The story of THE ODD POTATO is routed in the challenges of life and finds its resolution and strength in the indefatigable resilience of the human spirit."

"Sherman's novel, based on a true story, is a moving tale of courage in the face of prejudice. Characters are strongly developed and grow with the circumstances. Marina, in particular, is believable and likeable and her ambivalent feelings are deeply portrayed.
