Pop! is a children's illustrated picture book exploring the power of self-acceptance & overcoming obstacles.
Meet Otto, a young Kernel who's been dreaming about the day he would pop. But what happens when Pop Day finally arrives, and things don't go as planned? When all the Kernels pop except for Otto, he's left wondering what went wrong. Otto returns to his jar, alone, until a delicious smell leads to an exciting discovery. Perhaps Otto didn't need to pop to do everything he'd always dreamed of!
Otto's adventure is a quirky and endearing one. Kilpatrick effectively teaches readers that, like the protagonist, they can excel even in circumstances that may not be exactly what they pictured.-Kirkus reviews
