About this deal

Premise/plot: I would NOT want to be in Itching Down when FOUR MILLION wasps flew into town. I wouldn't want to be there for even ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND wasps. Would you? This classic picture book is told in rhyme. Though the situation is far from ideal, the text is DELIGHTFUL. The jam sandwich bit was a notion that when I was young, my dad, if we ever had a picnic, always used to put some strawberry jam away from the picnic to attract wasps from where we were settled. A lot of ideas are anecdotes from your own life; you can exploit them and bring them into fantasy. John Vernon Lord (Photograph: ONCA) Ask your student if he notices anything special about this story and the way it reads (it’s written in couplets– rhyming words at the end of two successive lines). List some of the rhyming words and see if you can think of MORE words that rhyme with those words. Place the biscuits on two or three baking sheets lined with baking parchment and, using the end of a paintbrush, make a pattern all around the edges. Rest in the fridge or at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

There were only three that got away, and where they are now I cannot say. urn:isbn:0808590731 Scandate 20110322224613 Scanner scribe3.sanfrancisco.archive.org Scanningcenter sanfrancisco Worldcat (source edition)

In a large bowl, sift the Homepride flour, cornflour and icing sugar together. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles crumbs. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract. In my work playing helps me to explore ideas, I feel relaxed, more inclined to be experimental, less attached to the outcome of what I’m doing. I’m more open to ideas and opportunities. I like to make things that are immersive, that encourage making and playfulness. Play is a great way to get people to engage with a subject.

Illustration does not yearn for the high cultural plane. It is a modest activity and it is not esoteric, nor is it a mere dumbing-down of art; it has its own distinct purpose. Fine art is allowed to be obscure and bewildering, but illustration is not; its purpose is to enlighten. It is art, but it’s an accessible art. In a nutshell, illustration is the art of the people. What do wasps like best to eat? Strawberry jam! Now wait a minute! If we made a giant sandwich we could trap them in it!” As a kid, I was pretty much fascinated with any book that had giant, colorful pictures of food, so it only makes sense that my two favorites were Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and this, The Giant Jam Sandwich. Despite the more varied foodstuffs on display in the former, I have to give the edge to the latter, because it actually showed people making the giant food instead of just being pelted with it from above. Kids like to know the process, I guess.Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, re-cut the central hearts straight away if necessary, and cool on the baking tray. Don’t try to move them until they’re cold!

Meanwhile, high above the field, six flying machines whirred and wheeled, ready for the wasps to take the bait. And then there was nothing to do but wait. OMG! How have I not known about this book? This is a story about giant food and it beat 'Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs' by 4 years. This book enchanted me and has been soaked in Cupids arrow juice for I fell in love with this story. It is so cute, so whimsical, and surreal. Gently bring the mixture into a ball, wrap in cling film and rest in the fridge for 30 minutes or so, as this buttery biscuit dough is very soft and needs to firm up.

I probably liked this book because I like d sandwiches, so found the idea of a giant one quite appealing. Somehow, despite the presence of this image, which is really, really disgusting when you think about it:

They called a meeting in the village hall, and Mayor Muddlenut asked them all, “What can we do?” And they said, “Good question!” But nobody had a good suggestion. Helicopters lift the other slice into the sky and wait for the wasps to land on the jam. When the wasps finally fly in, the helicopters drop the slice and trap the wasps in the sandwich. The story ends with nearly all of the wasps squished in the giant jam sandwich. This book is an entertaining read with detailed illustrations, extensive vocabulary and rhyming couplets, useful for upper KS1 and lower KS2 children, who will appreciate the colourful images, rhythmic pattern and creative narrative. If you are using jam and it is not smooth, warm it slightly in a small pain, then press through a sieve to remove any lumps. Let it cool completely. Spread 2 tbsp jam on to each of the whole biscuits, and dust those with heart-shaped holes with icing sugar. Re-watch ‘The Gingerbread Man’. Consider how each character felt during the story and reflect on how that influenced their behaviour.
