Ioan has been obsessed with this book since World Book Day, and having made his ‘Supertato box‘, he decided to use the veggies to accompany him reading the book.


  • ‘Supertato Veggies and the Valley of Doom’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet
  • Supertato and his box of vegetables
  • Toy food
  • Grimm’s building bricks and boards
  • Ostheimer trees and fish tank plants
  • Orange Circus scarf


First he read the scene in the aisle of the supermarket.

Then they moved on to the Valley of Doom.

Some pictures of him retelling the story again afterwards.
