    This is a very unusual book but I love it!

    I mean who would wake up one morning and decide to write a book about wasps and a giant jam sandwich?

    I would recommend this book to the younger readers but it is a great bedtime story too.

  2. Ava Atkins says:

  5. kclarke says:

    This is a book about a small town which is practically invaded by many hundreds of wasps and tries to get rid of them. They come up with a slightly ridiculous plan to make a Giant Jam Sandwich (hence the name of the book) to try and trap the bothersome insects. The villagers also decide that a wasp’s favourite food is jam. I recommend this book for younger readers.

    Miss Atkins read this poem to us in assembly and I was (pretty much) laughing for at least 1/4 of the time. But the great question is… If the wasps come again, the village will have run out of Jam, what will they use? Honey, mabey…..

    This book is really good and has a nice rhythm- since it rhymes. I think anyone of any age would enjoy it.

    A very funny short book to read (and to look at the illustrations) for younger children.

  14. llincoln says:

    When the wasps start annoying all the people make a giant jam sandwich to lure them away.

  15. Oscar Freeman says:

    The sandwich looked squashy and yummy – I think I could eat it all. I liked it when the wasps got squashed in the jam.

  16. ozamprogna says:

    I think this book is really funny because the people from the little town made a giant jam sandwich just to stop the wasps from annoying them!
