Supertato: Super Squad
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Supertato is on a mission to teach Evil Pea a lesson and rallies the Super Squad to help. Carrot, Cucumber, Broccoli and Pineapple leap into action, working as a team to gather the objects they need for the task. They swiftly find a good strong box and plenty of string but are puzzled when Supertato asks them to bake a batch of yummy, sprinkle-covered cupcakes.
This action-packed adventure is full of daft humour and reminds readers of the importance of kindness and generosity. The robust board book has rounded corners which help to avoid accidental pokes in the eye, while the chunky pages are easy for little hands to grasp and turn. The undulating edges provide a tantalising glimpse of every page, allowing children to guess which member of the Super Squad will make an appearance next, and observant readers will spot Evil Pea peeping out from the final page. Bold, vibrant illustrations provide plenty of visual interest, and may even encourage children to eat their vegetables! Look out for other exciting adventures in the series featuring this fun crew of super-foods.
