Sherman Oak and the Magic Potato


Sherman Oak and the Magic Potato by S. William Shaw

On the last day of school, Sherman Oak is given an atomic wedgie in front of hundreds of cheering students. Upon returning home, Sherman wishes for courage. A plain baked potato in an aluminum foil wrapper explodes with green light, and grants Sherman his wish. Sherman Oak is taken away against his will to a strange land. There, he must complete a journey filled with mosquito skeletons, snakes that wind from the sky, a haunted cottage, cactus outlaws, and a one hundred foot pus-oozing behemoth. If Sherman fails, his family and school mates will remain trapped in the land forever.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
