The Super Spud trilogy is a comical adventure that follows the lives of a group of genetically engineered, magical crisps. A number of these packets make it out of their multipack -- away from the humans -- and go to live on a landfill, embarking on a number of quests and adventures.
The Super Spud world is a world that seems jovial and friendly (they are walking, talking crisp packets after all) yet one far more dangerous than our own. The life of a Super Spud is a fickle and dangerous one, with the perilous potatoes dropping off at a rate of knots throughout the story. They have an epic bloodlust and turn everything they do (from motor racing and football to camping) into a death sport. They're obsessed with their own fickle existences and some of them (the Steak and Spinach flavours particularly) willingly sacrifice themselves for the good of heroism and posthumous medals.
It's a fun and unpredictable world with everything inside that you could possible wish for. Every human activity, myth and past-time, seems to have its own Super Spud variant. There are references to everything from the X-Files and Star Wars to Bigfoot and Goldilocks, with a multitude of characters to fill each story. I think my favorite of the many characters would be Flash, a Gordon's gin flavored Super Spud. A perpetually drunken take on the speedy superhero who arrives by crash landing in a plane, thinking he's driving a car.
An absurdly funny book packed with a number of fun adventures and great one-liners.
