The Couch Potato by Kerry Lyn Sparrow and Yinfan Huang is very funny. An uninvited potato plunks down on the couch in the Russett house. Mr. Russett does not see the humor in the situation and refuses to tidy it up. Everyone else in the family has fun with the potato as it handily morphs into a doll, a ball, a boulder--basically whatever anyone needs at the time. The illustrations are lively and the end is great.
