If you like Supertato, try these…

In every preschool or infant class, you’ll find fans of Supertato and his hilarious crew of vegetable friends (not forgetting his nemesis, Evil Pea). Written by husband and wife team Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet, the books are enjoyed by readers who like a high dose of action and unlikely characters who mean business.

We’ve put together a list of ten similar books for fans of Supertato. Readers looking for more stories about food brought to life might enjoy The Runaway Pea or Ten Fat Sausages. For more larger-than-life funny characters you’ll love, try Barbara Throws a Wobbler or Octopants. Some readers want more books with unlikely superheroes that save the day after reading Supertato, and we recommend the super-cool eight-legged secret agent Spyder, the cheesy adventures of Supermouse or the action-packed Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs. If you’re searching for more superhero tales, try Knock-Knock Superhero or head over to our Superheroes topic booklist.

But what if Barbara and her Wobbler can work together, so she can be cheerful again? A brilliantly funny and sensitive way to understand and deal with tantrums.

Supermouse is BACK! But with crime on the rise in Mouseopolis and trouble brewing at Mount Fondue, could this job be too much for one mouse to handle? It’s time to call for some back-up. This action-packed adventure is oozing with fun-filled lift-the-flaps, peep-through pages, and fiery fondue. Can you take the heat?
Matt Carr
Picturebook

Created in Matt Carr’s signature comic-book style with a palette of bold primary colours, this entertaining story follows Spyder, a secret agent arachnid whose codename is 008. Spyder is sent on a highly important mission to save one boy’s birthday cake from the destructive intentions of an uninvited Bluebottle.

The text is full of puns but the humour is perfectly pitched for adults and children alike. It was wonderful to see that the secret agent was female (because why wouldn’t she be?). There are oodles of extra details to spot, such as the various images on the screen of the agent’s spy gadget and the spider webpage at the end of the book.
 This delightful, cool and engaging picture book is a favourite at BooksForTopics HQ and is a real winner in the classroom.
Giles Andreae
 & Russell Ayto
Picturebook

Stubble makes Flinn the captain and they sail away on an old pirate ship...they finally find the Acorn but, to their horror, realise it's been stolen by PIRATE DINOSAURS! Captain Flinn and his crew attack the dinosaurs and, after much fighting, seize control of the ship once more. Flinn and his friends then sail back to the harbour clambering through the boatshed door and back into the art cupboard without the teacher even noticing they've been gone!
