Spanish author-illustrator Artur Laperla’s humorous series for young readers features a spud like no other: Super Potato can fly, fight, make potato jokes, and save the world all at once.

covers Super Max’s transformation from handsome superhero to tiny tuber at the hands of evil Dr. Malevolent. But that doesn’t slow Max down!
