 Encased in thick boards to simulate slices of bread, a comic novelty: deftly phrased verse describes a sandwich Sam stacks for his innocent sister, each layer (lettuce, cheese, etc.) hiding a creature within a clever foldout (``...to really make her squirm/Sam dropped in a wriggly...[worm]''), the whole truly resembling a fat booby trap of a sandwich. Guaranteed to compel attention. (Picture book. 4-9)
