The Disgusting Sandwich

On your marks… get set… GO! The sandwich is dropped, it’s squished and squashed – but who will reach it first? Join Badger in his race for what used to be a very tasty sandwich! All the animals in the bushes have their greedy eyes fixed on it, waiting to pounce. There’s a silver squirrel, a cunning fox and a band of slimy slugs. Will Badger ever get his paws on that disgusting sandwich? Or will he find something even yuckier to eat? A laugh-aloud picture book written by BBC producer Gareth Edwards. Hannah Shaw’s glorious pictures deserve a whopping slice of credit too.

  • A very funny story by a major author and illustrator
  • Plenty of disgusting chuckles plus a brilliant twist

  • My favourite character is the crow because she was very kind and took the sandwhich to give to her mum even though it looked disgusting -it’s the thought that counts!

    My favourite illustration is right at the end, it shows a picture of the sandwhich which looked extremely disgusting at this point, it was covered in dirt, ants and slugs but despite that a mouse starts tucking in!

    I rate this book 9/10 it has brilliant water coloured illustrations and disgusting images!
