July 2014 Book of the Month A terrific joke lies at the heart of this high action drama. When one badly behaved pea escapes from the freezer, chaos ensues. Luckily, there is a super hero to hand. Supertato, the potato with a very big difference, is soon on the tail of this tearaway. After a chase through scrumptious looking cakes, a near fatal accident for Supertato when he is attacked with a potato masher and much more the pea is finally trapped in a deliciously wobbly looking jelly and frog-marched back to the freezer.


Supertato by Sue Hendra

Meet Supertato! He's always there for you when the chips are down. He's the superhero with eyes everywhere - and he's about to meet his arch nemesis.

The fabulous new character from Sue Hendra, the bestselling illustrator of Barry the Fish with Fingers and Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell.
