Supertato by Sue Hendra (2014)

superHold on to your cape Batman, there’s another great Superhero picture book on the scene. A marauding vegetable from the freezer is creating chaos in the supermarket. Luckily Supertato comes to the rescue! I felt quite vindicated for this earlier post when I discovered the evil vegetable was none other than… a pea.

“But I’m out of the freezer now and I’m never going back! Mwah ha ha ha ha! And the evil pea ran off to commit more terrible crimes.”supertato

The battle between the pea and Supertato is really quite epic and the background scenery will be very familiar to most kids, featuring all sorts of supermarket staples like converyor belts, trolleys, frozen goods etc.

In equal parts hilarious and inspiring, Supertato is a must-read for fans of either superheroes, or potatoes!

Check out Supertato at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy Supertato from Fishpond.
