The Greatest Potatoes
by Penelope Stowell, Sharon Watts (Illustrator) / Hardcover: 36 pages / Jump At The Sun (2005) Who knew that potato chips were invented in an attempt to cook the worst-tasting potatoes on Earth? This dynamic picture book is based on the true story of George Crum.
Since then another quality book has been written about George Crum --
This title does acknowledge Crum's Native American Ancestry.
When I first posted this title -- a "Bev" responded that he was her G.G. grandfather. I would love to hear from Bev to find out a little more about Crum's later life -- email at firstname.lastname@example.org
For the rest of us these two books about George Crum are an interesting package for learning about a Native American who influenced a lot of food choices today - -just think how many varieties of pototo chips are now marketed and sold each day.
