The Disgusting Sandwich

Publisher: Alison Green Books

When a boy brings his mouth-watering sandwich to the park, he’s not the only one who thinks it looks rather appetizing. A series of animals also have their greedy eyes on it, including one very hungry badger.

However, before anyone can eat it, a series of accidents befall the unfortunate sandwich. Before long, it has been dropped in sand, squished by a skateboard and even slithered over by slugs. By the time the sun sets in the park and the badger gets his paws on it, the sandwich looks far from appealing. Will he still be tempted to taste it? A twist in the tale will provide the quirky answer.

This humorous picture book features a number of children in the background in the park, including a wheelchair-user. However the inclusion of the disabled child is far from tokenistic.  The boy in question is playing an active role, enjoying a game of tennis with his friend and the pair appear in several images. This is a great example of a delightful mainstream picture book including a disabled character positively, naturally and without comment
