In this silly, action-packed middle-grade graphic novel, a young chef is the only one who can protect her town from an onslaught of scientifically enhanced, highly addictive potatoes.

Eleven-year-old Yasmina and her single dad lead a modest life in a cramped apartment in a bustling city. But even though money is tight, they eat like kings. Every day, Yasmina uses her cookbooks and fresh vegetables from the community garden to whip up gourmet meals. That is, until the day the garden is bulldozed and replaced by a field of scientifically enhanced potatoes that are, quite literally, addictive! The whole city—and even Yasmina's dad—is going mad for these potatoes. And what's more, they're slobbering, chasing cats, and howling at the moon!

What's the secret ingredient in these potatoes that has everyone acting like a bunch of crazy canines? Yasmina needs to find a cure, and fast!
