"An exciting read!…"
I received this before the summer holidays, so I didn't get a chance to read it with the children at work (preschool) - but I have now, and they loved it! Even the fidgeters sat still and listened. There were gasps, shouts of "Oh no!!" and applause! I have had a lot of requests for repeat readings too. It's very popular!Read moreLess
I received this book from the Mumsnet giveaway.
When I first received this book I couldn't wait to read it and the shiny bright cover really attracted me to the book despite the fact it was a little unusual to see a potato being a superhero. I remembered reading Barry the Fish with Fingers so I had high hopes for this book.
The book is about Supertato who helps out the food in a supermarket after the peas have been up to mischief since escaping from the freezer.
When I first read this book I thought it was a really strange concept for a story and others I showed the book to agreed it was a bit strange but the children that read it loved the story and thought it was very funny having a potato save the day. To start with I didn't fully understand why the peas would do something like that but with the point made at the end that they were up to mischief because they were not frozen I thought it was a clever idea.
I think it is written well and is a good length and easy to read making it great for younger children, I have always preferred picture books to rhyme but I think how this was written was perfect for the story.
The illustrations in the book are fantastic and the children really loved how they were so detailed and brightly coloured. I think the last page if the book was brilliant with all the unfrozen peas hiding all over the page and giving the children something to search for.
Overall I think this is a very good book, a little different to typical stories but brilliant nevertheless.Read moreLess
