Rot, the Bravest in the World! Kindle Edition
"Using potato prints and mixed media to great gloopy effect, Clanton portrays a pair of truly scabrous
looking tubers...Young readers will happily slip into the slop with these terrific taters."
-- Booklist ― February 2020
"Clanton...succeeds in a delightfully disgusting readaloud that kids with a penchant for fart jokes will love....The book uses watercolors and, appropriately, potato stamps to depict Rot and his mutant potato friends in all their unibrowed, uneven pupilled glory in the style of a Cartoon Network show. Kids with a passion for the gross and smelly will find a home in this unabashed depiction of the slimy world of mutant potatoes." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books ― May 2020
"Rot the potato is a protagonist who, like many young children, is both grimy and adorable....Clanton uses colored pencils and potato stamps for the illustrations, creating spuds that are packed with personality.... Recommended for purchase. Rot and his brother may be small potatoes, but they share a heartwarming story about bravery and brotherly love." -- School Library Journal ― May 2020 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

What I’m looking forward to for this next school year is doing an author study on Ben Clanton with my 2nd grade class. Between Rot and his Narwhal and Jelly series, he has developed a distinct style and voice that would be fun for kids to analyze. I like how this book has a very similar structure on how the story progresses, but it’s still a completely different story. My recommendation is to buy it, and if you don’t have his other books, get them too!
