Supertato: Veggies in the Valley of Doom
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Supertato, Broccoli and their fruity friends discover a treasure map while they are playing hide and seek. The gang set off to hunt for treasure in the supermarket but dangers lurk down every aisle.
Quick-thinking Supertato keeps his friends safe from hungry creatures in the Valley of Doom and escapes a prickly situation in Cactus Canyon – but disaster strikes when quicksand leaves the group helpless. An unexpected hero takes centre stage which surprises everyone. Could Supertato’s old foe be turning a new leaf?
The latest book in the Supertato series brings another fast-paced and colourful story, full of exciting twists and turns. But as well as being an adventure story full of fun and laughter, it’s also a sweet tale about friends who always look out for each other. A great story to read aloud (doing the voices!), with lots to explore in the fabulously bold illustrations.
