Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Four million wasps invade Itching Down, so the villagers make a giant jam sandwich to trap them.

When I saw this on the shelf I was suddenly awash in fond childhood memories. This is one of the few books that I remember vividly from visits to my grandparents' house. How could any kid forget it? Giant sandwiches and swarms of bugs? It is both delightful and disturbing. I immediately bought a new copy for my niece.
