5.0 out of 5 stars a children's classic
As a primary school teacher, I used to read this to my Year 1 class. The mixed up shopping list is so irresistably 'correctable' the children would be almost yelling with frustration and enjoyment to put it right! I'm buying it for christmas for my 3 yr old neice as I know she'll love it.

2.0 out of 5 stars horrible illustrations
I love the theme of this book- a misremembered shopping list. It is a simple and funny idea, and one that I think young children can grasp and that would be familiar to them. BUT! the illustrations - which are important for the visual jokes, and for the age of the children this is aimed at, are so ghastly and amateurish they are distracting. Instead of being able to...

5.0 out of 5 stars cracking book!, 19 July 2010

This was a book I loved when I was a child, so was chuffed I could find it for my son as I knew he'd like it too. It is a great little book about getting muddled up.
It still works all these years later, and now works as a 'retro' book.

The children I work with enjoyed this book. It had a nice rhyming text and the chldren all tried to remember the correct things to go for. It was funny all the things that sounded the same but were all wrong. Would recommend this book. Have seen from some of your reviews before I bought this that some people thought it out of date. The children I work with certainly did not and neither do I.

I love the theme of this book- a misremembered shopping list. It is a simple and funny idea, and one that I think young children can grasp and that would be familiar to them. BUT! the illustrations - which are important for the visual jokes, and for the age of the children this is aimed at, are so ghastly and amateurish they are distracting. Instead of being able to read the book I find myself staring in horror at the appallingly drawn people who consequently look like distorted, wooden, lumpish, oafs. This book is such a lovely idea that I wish it would be reprinted with professional illustrations.

The book was in very good condition and well packed when it arrived. The book is a really good story for young children. The pictures are lively and bright and the book is excellent for reading aloud.

Brought this book for my 3 year old,he wasn't very interested in it really. Maybe he's a bit young for it.
I always remembered this book being really good.
Just hope he's gets to like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book for granddaughter, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don't Forget The Bacon (Red Fox Classics) (Paperback)
I know this book from reading it many times at storytelling sessions. It is an easy repetitive story which young children love to help out with. Buying this to add to my granddaughter's library, she is 15 months and enjoys her growing bookshelf.
