The Disgusting Sandwich Review

Cooking / Food Featured Books for 3+ readers Featured Books for 5+ readers Funny Stories about Animals

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 Disgusting Sandwich Synopsis

A hilarious picture book about a very hungry, and rather unlucky, badger in search of a sandwich - with a wickedly funny twist in the tale One day, a boy drops his sandwich in a sandpit, and the race is on!

A very hungry badger wants it, but he's just not quick enough. The sandwich is dropped, squashed and slithered over by everyone 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?

Children will love the 'yuck factor' of the ending, when the badger ditches the sandwich in favour of slurping up all the slimy slugs Beautifully written with satisfying repetition and a refrain children will love joining in with/

Gorgeous illustrations by Hannah Shaw bring this funny picture book to life in glorious, quirky detail.
