What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

When a baked potato–loving lady adopts a dog, she adores him unconditionally—and given the pup's small, round frame and warm, brown coat she can't help but call him "Baked Potato"! But what happens when a dog who thinks he's a baked potato gets lost? Will he find his lady? And more importantly, will he find himself? I'm a Baked Potato! is a fun, bighearted story about the names we're given, the names we choose, and how both can help us find our way home. Full of heart and laugh-out-loud moments, this story will leave readers giggling—and looking at pets in a whole new way.

Mom of Boys's Rating

I'm not a big pet person which might be why this wasn't my favorite book. I didn't love the story line of the dog not knowing he was a dog. The book talks about a creepy house where the fox lives and I can see my little ones being scared of that. I did like the wise old owl though.
