Super Spuds are magical potatoes that, once placed in their foil crisp packets, come alive when they surpass their use-by dates. There are three magical rules which govern their survival, primarily that they cannot be seen or heard by humans. And so long as they remain undetected by humans, they enjoy life in their own Super Spud cities, take part in major Super Spud sporting events and even start the odd Super Spud war or two. The personality of the Super Spud is determined by their flavour. Tuna flavours, enriched with omega-3 fish oils, are very smart; steak and spinach flavours are incredibly strong due to their high iron content; while Swiss roll flavours are balanced in their acidity/alkalinity and their personality is unbiased and neutral. The story is fast and a series of non-stop adventures from one chapter to the next, encompassing locations including Egypt, Mexico, the UK, Italy and the North Pole! I basically want to entertain the reader and let them read something truly original and quirky. It also contains many references to popular films and characters like: Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Robin Hood, 24's Jack Bauer and Batman. It's fun, quirky and unpredictable and, hopefully, unlike anything the reader has read before.
