The Baked Potato Boy by Dorris Fortson

baked potatoe

A delightful story of Elliott and how he thrives.

When Elliott was left at the orphanage, he was small, like a baked potato. He drank milk from a dropper and was carried in a Khanga to stay warm. Dorris Fortson, a missionary in Africa, tells Elliott’s story, explaining terms like orphan and kangaroo style, and helps the reader to see through her descriptions just how tiny Elliott used to be so they can appreciate as he grows.

The endearing and fun illustrations are by Chance Alvis and Julia Treesfeld of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor Applied Design Studio. Love the cover art on this one.

Something important to point out is that all the proceeds from the book go to an orphanage for abandoned, orphaned and at risk babies in Arusha, Tanzania East Africa.

A great book with a unique story. The Baked Potato Boy by Dorris Fortson is entertaining and educational.
