Daddy's Sandwich by Pip Jones

From Squishy McFluff author Pip Jones and bright new talent Laura Hughes, this is a brilliantly funny and charming picture book perfect for ages 3+ and for Fathers' Day gifts.

Reviews

When a little girl offers to make her distracted daddy a sandwich, readers will assume they know what's coming. She begins by adding butter, cheese, and tomatoes to crusty white bread, but before long, she's throwing in personal and household items that her dad loves, including his slippers, tool belt, TV remote, and cell phone. Eventually, the girl starts to pile onto the sandwich all the things she loves, including her jigsaws and wading pool! As the items get sillier and sillier, the child adds a giant squirt of ketchup and then climbs to the top of the towering sandwich concoction, knowing that she is the one thing that Daddy loves most of all. The little girl looks darling and slightly mischievous, while the expression on the father's face when he sees the sandwich is a perfect mixture of sheepishness and horrified surprise. Â
