Thumbs up for Mr. Crum’s Potato Predicament by Anne Renaud. Children’s picture book.
A delightfully-illustrated picture book – “a fictional tale with a helping of truth” – about a real historical figure, George Crum, a Black/Native man who was a successful restauranteur in the mid-1800’s (that’s the true part) who, while dealing with a fussy customer, invents the potato chip (that’s the “tall tale” part). It’s cute.
