9780395442371: The Giant Jam Sandwich (Sandpiper Book) (Rise and Shine)

It's a dark day for Itching Down. Four million wasps have just descended on the town, and the pests are relentless! What can be done? Bap the Baker has a crazy idea that just might work . . .

Young readers will love this lyrical, rhyming text as they watch the industrious citizens of Itching Down knead, bake, and slather the biggest wasp trap there ever was! John Vernon Lord's bright ink and crayon illustrations fill the pages with humorous detail.

About the Author:

John Vernon Lord dons many hats including author, illustrator, and teacher. His children’s books have been published all over the world in a number of languages. His classic picture book The GIANT JAM SANDWICH, with verses by Janet Burroway, has remained in print since its initial publication in 1972 and continues to be loved by children of all ages. John Vernon Lord lives in Ditchling, Sussex.

From AudioFile:

New readers will be both captured and supported by the story and pictures that tell of Itching Down, a village beset by four million biting wasps, and its townspeople, who work together on an ingenious solution: carrying the insects away in a giant jam sandwich. Verses by Janet Burroway are perfect. The reading by George Capaccio emphasizes drama and adds voices for the mayor and the baker. Then there's the music and sound effects--everything from the buzz of a town meeting to the buzz of the wasps, which signals page-turns for beginning readers.
