While Papa is away in America setting up a new home for his family, the Great War breaks out, leaving Mama and the children trapped in Europe. Very soon they run out of money and food.

Simcha, the oldest boy, knows that Papa expects him to keep the family safe–and so begins this adventure. Life is hard, food is scarce, and the Russian soldiers are cunning and dangerous.

Based on true events from the author’s own family history, The Great Potato Plan describes the joys, fears, trials and triumphs of a young boy in World War I Poland.

Featuring easy vocabulary, black and white illustrations, and short chapters designed for new readers eager to read.
