Book Birthday Bash


My Life As A Potato by Arianne CostnerHappy Book Birthday to MY LIFE AS A POTATO!

In this middle-grade novel, Ben Hardy believes he’s cursed by potatoes. And now he’s moved to Idaho, where the school’s mascot is Steve the Spud! Yeah, this cannot be good. After accidentally causing the mascot to sprain an ankle, Ben is sentenced to Spud duty for the final basketball games of the year. But if the other kids know he’s the Spud, his plans for popularity are likely to be a big dud! Ben doesn’t want to let the team down, so he lies to his friends to keep it a secret. No one will know it’s him under the potato suit . . . right?

We’re so happy you’re at our party for MY LIFE AS A POTATO. Join in the fun…


At the Spud Day festival in Idaho! (Seriously, in my dreams. I want to go to this so bad.)


My characters don’t mention listening to music, so I’m gonna have to go with the late 90s/early 2ks punk-pop stuff. Just because it’s the best.


ALLLL the potato dishes. Fries. Chips. Twice baked. Seriously, potatoes are wonderfully versatile.


How about hot potato. Potato sack races. Pin the googly eyes on the potato.


Potato plushies. (I really have these and they are glorious)
