This was a very funny book and I think all ages would be enticed by its silliness. The story is centered around a little girl adding ingredients to her family sandwich.

This book uses a huge variety of adjectives and I think it would be great for years 2-4 to use as inspiration for descriptive writing. It also teaches the valuable lesson of being careful what you wish for. The main character Sunny isn’t satisfied with her family and decides to add to it, only to realise in the end she was much happier with the original. The book is beautifully illustrated and allows for plenty of discussion.

I thought this book was a bit strange, but my sons loved it and the youngest came up to me later requesting an ice cream sandwich, without the lettuce.
