SUE HENDRA & PAUL LINNET present BUBBLY TROUBLY!

4 March 2021 from 9am

A very special FREE opportunity for your school – Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet are creating a hilarious spudtastic online show based on the new Supertato book especially for Greater Manchester schools. Expect singing, silliness, bubbles and a lot of vegetables!

It will go live on YouTube on 4 March at 9am. You can use the link at any point throughout the day to fit into your World Book Day plans. This can be shared with students at home or in your school setting. You will receive the link and the Supertato digital education resources in advance.

What is the book about?

It is night-time in the supermarket, and it’s the veggies’ weekly bath. But…what’s this? SOMEONE has been meddling with the bubble bath and that can only lead to one thing: BUBBLY TROUBLY!

Are Supertato and the veggies all washed up? Or can they clear the aisles and POP that pea back where he belongs?

Find out in Supertato’s newest, irresistible laugh-out-loud adventure!
