The Lovereading4Kids comment

There’s a great joke running right through this witty picture book to the excellent punch line. Badger is always hungry and now his tummy is rumbling! He so badly wants the fresh white bread and peanut butter sandwich which he sees in the little boy’s hand. But others have designs on it too…A squirrel, a fox, a frog and a crow are just some of those who also covet the sandwich. After several accidents in which it gets gloopy, squishy, sluggy and slimy the sandwich does not look as good as it once did. Will anyone eat it now?? A hilarious treat of disgustingness!

The sandwich is dropped, squashed and slithered over by everyon from a squirrel, to a fox, to a band of slugs Will the badger ever get his paws on that sandwich? And will he even want it if he does, or will it just be too disgusting?
