About The Book

An infectious rhyming story about a Dad whose penchant for eating leftover food soon lands him in trouble.

Do you leave food on your plate at mealtimes? If you do, beware, it could lead to all sorts of trouble…

The dad in this book has a penchant for leftover food—even the bits that are soggy and chewed! He eats EVERYTHING—unfinished sandwiches, cold soggy fires, unwanted broccoli, half eaten pies! But when, one day, he accidentally guzzles the cat’s Puss-Pep-Up Powder, strange things start to happen…
