But, were it not for those imploring words from Paul Linnet to Sue Hendra in a Brighton pub 12 years ago with Hendra — eventually — agreeing to a date , there would be no Supertato, Norman, Barry, Gordon or Wanda. Supertato, a cape-clad superhero potato who battles his arch-nemesis Evil Pea in every adventure, is their best-loved character. Even the choice of these vegetables has a link to their history as a couple. They tried out various settings for the characters, from a compost heap to a city with a New York skyline, before settling on a supermarket at night, after all the shoppers have gone home, suggesting a secret world.
Meet Supertato! He's always there for you when the chips are down. He's the superhero with eyes everywhere - but now there's a pea on the loose. A very, very naughty pea. Has Supertato finally met his match? Praise for Supertato : 'Hilarious
You might assume that a book called Cake would be sickly sweet but it very much falls into this mischievous category. Made by the publishing dream team of Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, it has the same silly humour that has made their off-the-wall Supertato series a runaway success. The book starts with Cake receiving an invite to a party. After much consideration and some comedic outfit options , he buys a fancy new hat that looks suspiciously like icing and candles. This book is a big slice of fun with rich layer of wit, like the buffet food rescue party led by a raspberry jelly and the sight of a camp cake riding a bike. The artwork is also bright and attractive, with a sparkly cover befitting a birthday celebration. Baby Bookworm has a weak spot for cake anyway so he has greedily devoured this story, asking for more every time.
