Quick! Go buy some cool House of Deadleg tees featuring my illustrations over at my Teemill store. Suitable for kids and big kids.

We're big fans of Sue Hendra in our house. We've done Barry, Norman, Keith and Doug, but for some reason, we've missed out on Supertato previously. Supertato - Run, veggies, run, is the third book in the series (not counting the story released for World Book Day in 2016) and finds Supertato organising a sports day for the fruit and veg in the supermarket. The promise of prizes is enough to get everyone to take part, but the Evil Pea decides he wants the prizes for himself and concocts an evil scheme…

This review originally appeared on the AOI blog.

I read this book with my daughter who's four and she really enjoyed it. She couldn't pick out a favourite bit of the story because she liked it all, but she did pick out the Evil Pea as her favourite character because "he's silly, he thinks he can dash". I really liked it too – the story is fun, the illustrations are bright, colourful and energetic. Coincidentally, the Evil Pea was my favourite too, and we'll be picking up the other books in the series to see if there's an origin story there somewhere.
