Book Review: Spider Sandwiches by Claire Freedman and Sue Hendra

This book pairs one of our favourite authors and one of our favourite illustrators in a brilliant tale about a monster who likes his food. The children thought this book was hilarious and the distinctive style of Hendra’s illustrations really make it a memorable story. I must say that the idea of spider sandwiches is so horrific that it doesn’t bear thinking about in reality. Good job my children didn’t think too much about it!

If you love Aliens Love Underpants and Barry the Fish with Fingers then you’ll love this book. I don’t want to spoil it too much suffice to say the six year old boy took the book to bed (a rare thing to happen) and proclaimed it ‘the best book ever’.
