    Two words: Potato butt. 'Nuf said. :) ...

    Rot has so much to offer readers. First up, honesty. Yes it?s okay to like to win, yes we all compare ourselves to others and yes we all have considered doing something we are not supposed to. Then there?s Rot?s joy of being who he is regardless of how he measured up to others. A...

    I enjoyed most things about this book. Rot is a fun character who enjoys being himself, but when faced with a cute bunny, cuddly kitten, and peppy jellyfish he decides to try to be more. When that doesn't work out he struts out onto the stage as the one and only ROT THE CUTEST IN THE W...

    I bought this for my son for Valentine's Day. I decided to read it without him lol. I loved the message that you should just be yourself. The artwork was very cute and I loved it when he said, "Then I showed them my best side." They showed a picture of his mutant potato rump. Totally a...

    This had to be one of the funniest pictures books I saw all year. And the end message is loving yourself for who you are. ...

    I thought this was stinking adorable! It's one of those perspective sort of books, only more of a 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' type. ...

    My daughter adores this book. I gave it to her for Christmas and it?s been the bedtime choice 3 days in a row since. It?s funny, the kind of funny that?s accessible even to perceptive preschoolers- unibrows & sly jokes about rear ends. ...

    Rot loves winning contests! When he sees the "Cutest in the World" contest, he knows he's going to win! But when his competition is a fluffy bunny, a cute kitten, and a perky jellyfish, Rot has his doubts. He tries to be more like his opponents, but in the end, he decides to be himself...

    I don't think I liked this book quite as much as I should have - I LOVED the "be yourself" message, because it was presented in such a positive way. But I think it definitely loses a lot of its....legitimacy? When you see the judges. So it's about being yourself, but also about knowing...

    I don't think I liked this book quite as much as I should have - I LOVED the "be yourself" message, because it was presented in such a positive way. But I think it definitely loses a lot of its....legitimacy? When you see the judges. So it's about being yourself, but also about knowing...

    I was expecting nothing that happened in this book. Rot . . . is a mutant potato. He's going win a contest. A . . . Cutest in the World contest. And it's awesome. I laughed out loud reading this book several times. The art is adorable and the story is great. At one point, I ...

    Rot has so much to offer readers. First up, honesty. Yes it?s okay to like to win, yes we all compare ourselves to others and yes we all have considered doing something we are not supposed to. Then there?s Rot?s joy of being who he is regardless of how he measured up to others. A...

    I bought this for my son for Valentine's Day. I decided to read it without him lol. I loved the message that you should just be yourself. The artwork was very cute and I loved it when he said, "Then I showed them my best side." They showed a picture of his mutant potato rump. Totally a...

    First off, most importantly, my kids (age 5 and 7) LOVE this book. At BN, I picked a pile of picture books with positive messages to read to my 5-year old daughter like Ada Twist Scientist, I am Enough, The Book of Mistakes.... She saw this on the shelf and brought it over. The goofy-l...

    In the exploration of discovering who you are, children will giggle in delight with the hilarious adventure of a mutant potato, and his search to be the ?Cutest in the world.? When Rot learns that there is a ?Cutest in the world contest? he can?t wait to enter, after all,...

    Never before have I read a book where the main character is a mutant potato. But, that's what Rot is. One day he decides to enter a "Cutest in the world" contest. He's completely confident he'll win - until he sees the other contestants. Then Rot's insecurity makes him try to be someth...

    Rot, the Cutest in the World! is a must read for all ages! (preschool and up). This sends a beautiful message for children that no matter how you look like if you believe in yourself you can be anything you want. Teachers can use this book as teaching lesson to teach kids that we need ...

    Rot loves winning contests! When he sees the "Cutest in the World" contest, he knows he's going to win! But when his competition is a fluffy bunny, a cute kitten, and a perky jellyfish, Rot has his doubts. He tries to be more like his opponents, but in the end, he decides to be himself...

    Maybe I have an anti-potato bias. The message of the book is a good one. I feel like almost every story element was successful. I figured what the result was going to be (though it was not the only choice that could have been made), but the reveal of how we got there with the judges wo...

    I bought this for my son for Valentine's Day. I decided to read it without him lol. I loved the message that you should just be yourself. The artwork was very cute and I loved it when he said, "Then I showed them my best side." They showed a picture of his mutant potato rump. Totally a...

    This had to be one of the funniest pictures books I saw all year. And the end message is loving yourself for who you are. ...

    I started to give this four stars, and then thought "Who am I trying to kid! I loved this book!" Rot really is the cutest in the world. ...

    I thought this was stinking adorable! It's one of those perspective sort of books, only more of a 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder' type. ...

    I'm not sure what exactly happened at that contest, but ... potato butt. My kids will love it. ...

    My daughter adores this book. I gave it to her for Christmas and it?s been the bedtime choice 3 days in a row since. It?s funny, the kind of funny that?s accessible even to perceptive preschoolers- unibrows & sly jokes about rear ends. ...

    OMG. Mutant potato butt cheeks. ::SWOON:: ...

    Funny and it has a good theme! ...

    First off, most importantly, my kids (age 5 and 7) LOVE this book. At BN, I picked a pile of picture books with positive messages to read to my 5-year old daughter like Ada Twist Scientist, I am Enough, The Book of Mistakes.... She saw this on the shelf and brought it over. The goofy-l...

    In the exploration of discovering who you are, children will giggle in delight with the hilarious adventure of a mutant potato, and his search to be the ?Cutest in the world.? When Rot learns that there is a ?Cutest in the world contest? he can?t wait to enter, after all,...

    Never before have I read a book where the main character is a mutant potato. But, that's what Rot is. One day he decides to enter a "Cutest in the world" contest. He's completely confident he'll win - until he sees the other contestants. Then Rot's insecurity makes him try to be someth...

    Rot, the Cutest in the World! is a must read for all ages! (preschool and up). This sends a beautiful message for children that no matter how you look like if you believe in yourself you can be anything you want. Teachers can use this book as teaching lesson to teach kids that we need ...

    Rot loves winning contests! When he sees the "Cutest in the World" contest, he knows he's going to win! But when his competition is a fluffy bunny, a cute kitten, and a perky jellyfish, Rot has his doubts. He tries to be more like his opponents, but in the end, he decides to be himself...

    This clever picture book has a great growth mindset message for young readers: beauty is in the eye of the beholder and you are your cutest when you?re being yourself. Rot, a mutant potato, loves games and contests. So when he finds out about a cuteness contest, he signs up right awa...

    Maybe I have an anti-potato bias. The message of the book is a good one. I feel like almost every story element was successful. I figured what the result was going to be (though it was not the only choice that could have been made), but the reveal of how we got there with the judges wo...

    LMAO!!!!! Literally. I enjoyed this book so much that I posted on Facebook and Instagram. These pictures are cute and funny like a horror show. The story was tragic and hilarious. This would be fun as a storytime, with a fun craft. It can also be an important teaching moment as well. T...

    It?s a must-share with every child. Hopefully, even teens will get the message. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and Rot, a mutant potato show us that well in Ben Clanton?s story. He?s a happy mutant potato and when he sees the sign for ?The Cutest In The World? contest...

    Very funny read. Definitely reminds me of an "Elephant and Piggie" book in its humor and style, but it's an original story all its own. Rot, the potato, is unique and special. He loves to play in the mud, eat, and play games. One day, he decides to enter a "Cutest in the World" contest...

    I don't think I liked this book quite as much as I should have - I LOVED the "be yourself" message, because it was presented in such a positive way. But I think it definitely loses a lot of its....legitimacy? When you see the judges. So it's about being yourself, but also about knowing...

    I was expecting nothing that happened in this book. Rot . . . is a mutant potato. He's going win a contest. A . . . Cutest in the World contest. And it's awesome. I laughed out loud reading this book several times. The art is adorable and the story is great. At one point, I ...

    This book is rather silly, but cute. A strange looking potato enters a beauty pageant. The other contestants make fun of him, but he embraces himself, and he ends up winning. Christopher enjoyed this one. Sadly, he read it from his bed while I sat on the couch, and I couldn?t hear mo...

    If I was still in the library I would absolutely purchase this book and read it out loud to every class in the school from K to grade 7. Not only is it hilarious and sweet, it?s got a surprise ending that includes an important message about how beauty is defined. If you don?t fall ...

    A nice variation on "the ugly duckling" in which, in the end, Rot decides he likes himself for whom he is instead of growing up to be beautiful. I mean, honestly, who grows up to be beautiful anyway? Not me, that's for sure. ...

    My daughter adores this book. I gave it to her for Christmas and it?s been the bedtime choice 3 days in a row since. It?s funny, the kind of funny that?s accessible even to perceptive preschoolers- unibrows & sly jokes about rear ends. ...

    OMG. Mutant potato butt cheeks. ::SWOON:: ...

    Funny and it has a good theme! ...

    First off, most importantly, my kids (age 5 and 7) LOVE this book. At BN, I picked a pile of picture books with positive messages to read to my 5-year old daughter like Ada Twist Scientist, I am Enough, The Book of Mistakes.... She saw this on the shelf and brought it over. The goofy-l...

    Two words: Potato butt. 'Nuf said. :) ...

    Rot has so much to offer readers. First up, honesty. Yes it?s okay to like to win, yes we all compare ourselves to others and yes we all have considered doing something we are not supposed to. Then there?s Rot?s joy of being who he is regardless of how he measured up to others. A...

    I enjoyed most things about this book. Rot is a fun character who enjoys being himself, but when faced with a cute bunny, cuddly kitten, and peppy jellyfish he decides to try to be more. When that doesn't work out he struts out onto the stage as the one and only ROT THE CUTEST IN THE W...

    I bought this for my son for Valentine's Day. I decided to read it without him lol. I loved the message that you should just be yourself. The artwork was very cute and I loved it when he said, "Then I showed them my best side." They showed a picture of his mutant potato rump. Totally a...

    This had to be one of the funniest pictures books I saw all year. And the end message is loving yourself for who you are. ...
