Story & Craft: Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich

Nonsense Sandwiches, inspired by Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich by Lorraine Francis, illustrated by Pieter Gaudesaboos and published by Book Island.

This activity is part of seven weeks of stories and craft inspired by books from Bristol based publisher Book Island.

Sammy is a little boy with a huge appetite. The enterprising toddler feels like eating the biggest, tallest sandwich in the world, so he pulls out all the stops. The sandwich soon grows taller than he is, but fortunately there‚Äôs a ladder…. Sammy and the Skyscraper Sandwich is an ode to the creative fantasy of toddlers, who love to convert features of their surroundings into something quite different for a while.
