Loved this book written in rhyme and full of fun illustrations. When Ruby was a baby Dad was half asleep one night when he went to get a bottle of milk to feed her. Sadly he gave her a bottle of tomato ketchup instead. Now Ruby has to have tomato ketchup on EVERYTHING!

'She glugged ketchup on her boiled egg (and even in her soup)...
Ketchup on her ice cream too...
that poured out with a gloop!'

and when she runs out she screams "I want more ketchup please!"

This is a really fun picture book that I found the children really loved. The text tells the tale of a little girl who is a fussy eater that loves ketchup. I found that many of the children could relate to the text as they were either a fussy stare themselves or knew someone who is. There is also a very humorous use of repetition that I found the class like to join in on which proved to be effective.

Fun read for the kids but it shocks me that there are no people of colour illustrated in this book. Ok Ruby and her family fine, but the shops and the lorries and all the soldiers?! Adam Bestwixk lives a sheltered life maybe??
