5.0 out of 5 stars Sharratt Can Do No Wrong 21 April 2008
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Spiral-bound
If you like the split page concept, which has traditionally been used for dressing up style books, i.e. policeman's head with ballerina's body and footballer's knees, type thing, you will love this. Sharratt repeats the success of 'A Cheese and Tomato Spider', which works the same way, and this is none the worse for that.

The thing that will always make Sharratt perennially popular, no matter what he does, is the fine quality of his illustrations and the perennial appeal they have for children anywhere. I have yet to meet a child who doesn't like his work. The drawings are bold and amusing on their own, with this format the child is in charge of creating some fantastic and bizarre creations of their own, which puts them in the driving seat and allows them free rein with their imagination. Highly recommended.

By A Customer

This book is endless fun. My 3 and 4 year olds love it. The odd combinations of food provide riotous fun. The pictures and words are bold and eyecatching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book for children 26 Feb 2008
By Rachel
Format:Spiral-bound
Ok, so it may not be the best book for progressing childrens reading skills, but it is so fun!
When I was younger me and my friend used to sit through class in fits of laughter reading this book - "Do you put a rubber duck on your head?" "Do you put milk in your bath?" - hilarious!
The flip-style structure makes children make up their own weird combinations. Great illustrations, a simple and light read - a must for youngsters.

Laugh out loud funny with brilliantly bright illustrations. You and your little one will love reading this. It's suitable for both younger toddlers and bigger ones. My girls (20 mths & 3) both find this rip roaringly funny (and I do too!!!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 29 Mar 2010
By Dee
Format:Spiral-bound
I could read this book all day and my 3-year old niece will never get tired of it. It's not a story as such and not recommended for bed time (as children get very involved in it - "Rubber Duck on your Cornflakes?" "Nooooo!!"). Great colours and structured in a clever way with split pages so that you get a different 'story' each time. Great fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars He won't let me put this down 25 Sep 2009
Format:Spiral-bound
Again, this was a present for my 3 year old nephew, I chose it as he loves the Never Use a Knife and Fork book so much and this looked similar. I sit with him and read it and with the inclusion of some silly voices and expressions when it is a ridiculous combination, he absolutely loves it. The only trouble being that he never wants to let me stop reading it with him!
