The Pet Potato
To quell his relentless requests for a pet, Albert's parents finally gift him a potato to look after. Although it's not what he expected, Albert grows to love the potato, until one day, it disappears . . .
A comedic tale exploring responsibility and loss, with light personification that sees the potato's 'expression' change throughout the text. The charming and inevitable twist comes when the 'deceased' potato, lovingly buried in the ground, sprouts roots and shoots and produces enough potatoes for the whole community to have a pet of their own.
