Daddy’s Sandwich

Pip Jones, illus. by Laura Hughes. Faber & Faber (PGW, dist.), $9.95 paper (32p) ISBN 978-0-571-31183-5
A dauntless girl in a yellow dress and pigtails can’t wrestle her father’s attention away from the TV. Her solution? Build him a sandwich filled with all of his favorite things: “Daddy loves biscuits dunked in tea. Daddy loves his slippers, ’cos they’re old and very cosy.” Into the sandwich also goes her father’s banjo and tool belt, as well as her drawings, kiddie pool, and pop-up books. Naturally, it’s only a matter of time before the girl winds up in the towering sandwich herself, because, “more than anything, Daddy loves... Me!” Hughes’s unruly artwork makes the most of the humorous absurdity of the premise, which should prompt plenty of giggles. Up to age 5. (May)
