Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich
Publisher: Book Island Books
Sammy is hungry and he's going to make a sandwich. With a list of fillings longer than his arm, everyone's going to notice Sammy's sandwich. Some people say it's the biggest sandwich in the world - but Sammy isn't finished yet. Some people say it's a skyscraper, two skyscrapers, two skyscrapers atop the world's tallest mountain - when will Sammy stop?
The first UK picture book release from New Zealand's Book Island is a winner. The extra-large glossy format is immediately appealing and the illustrations are unique and brilliant. A very stylish, very funny and very cool picture book that might make some little children think twice about having eyes bigger than their tummies.
