Martha wants to have friends over so she buys some delectable clothing for them to munch on. Unfortunately, Martha finds the clothes so tasty that she ends up eating most of them before her friends even arrive.

Illustrations were pretty basic, but fun to look at. I loved watching the little moth expand as she keep eating!

It’s Martha Moth’s birthday and she’s having friends over! Unfortunately, her kitchen is bare, except for a small jar of her favorite dust. Just in time, she buys ingredients from the store, ready to make a lovely dinner for her guests. But oh dear! As she cooks, she begins to “sample” the lovely sweater and scarf and finishes them up by herself! Only two socks are left when her guests arrive. Luckily, they help her make a delicious dish of itchy wool socks with dust gravy, and all are full and ...more

This book would be good for third grade readers. The words are small and some are long. However the content is fun and could be understood. A highlight of this book is actually the story- it is funny which is something that kids would really enjoy.This book would be good for a level M reader.

This was cute and original. I like the dust used as seasoning for the wool. My 2.5 year old liked it.

cute story about a month who eats everything in sight before her guests come for her birthday party - maybe hard to understand

This. Is. One of the best. Children's. Books. I've read. In a LONG. Time. (Lots of fullstops means I MEAN IT)

This book goes well with a demo using a hole punch as "Marth" and pictures of the scarf, sweater, yarn, and socks. A sweet story with good artwork that pre-readers will love.
