Super Sausage by Mark Watson is about a hero in disguise, Brad Wurst, also known as Super Sausage, who lives in the big city of Meatropolis. Brad is on his way to work one day when a spacecraft arrives. Royal Stink, the garlic king, leader of the alien vegetables from a distant farm, has arrived to take over. His hordes of followers turn into monster veggies that attack the peaceful meat-kind. Throughout the fight that ensues, Brad is transformed into his superhero form, Super Sausage, ready to save the day. He gets past the yams and eggplant, then battles artichoke and celery. He’s chained with rotini and tied with linguini. Can he face the garlic king when he’s held down by fettuccini? Just when you think it can’t get any more dangerous, the avocados attack!

A humorous romp through a veggie vs. meat battle, Mark Watson’s Super Sausage really made me giggle. The illustrations are large and colorful. The poetic cadence is entrancing. And the humor! Did I mention the humor? There are jokes for kids and adults alike. Some of the more subtle fun is a trademark of Mark Watson’s comic style of writing, such as when a bag of dried fruit gets kicked in the nuts. Super Sausage is another saga in Mark Watson’s portfolio of wild and entertaining illustrated books for children. I’ve been reading Mark Watson for years and can’t wait to read more. But be forewarned. As the official cover says: Parental Advisory, Contains Violence Against Fruit ‘N Veg. Good for any age, this book is illustrated by both Mark Watson and Richard Caine.
