Mrs MacCready Was Ever So Greedy - Book Review

We received Mrs MacCready Was Ever So Greedy to review. This is a fun picture book from the Ever So series written by Julie Fenton and illustrated by Jona Jung.

As soon as Miss C saw the cover, she knew the book was similar to Tabitha Posy Was Ever So Nosy and Miss Dorothy-Jane Was Ever So Vain and she couldn't wait to read it.

This story is about a lady called Mrs MacCready who loves to eat. It doesn't matter if the food is healthy or unhealthy, sweet or savory or even if it's full of worms. Miss C was quite grossed out at the worm part, so at least I don't have to worry about her eating any worms during mud pie making. 

Mrs MacCready ends up eating so much that her favourite string vest doesn't fit her anymore. I thought this was fun book to read but also gave me the opportunity to talk to Miss C and ask her to point out healthy foods, sweet foods and snack foods. We also talked about how we need to play a lot, which Mrs MacCready didn't want to do with the Indians in the woods, to get exercise and keep fit.

The pictures are fun and colourful. Miss C loved the ginger cat who kept a close eye on Mrs MacCready and her eating habits. He even brought her some sugar mice.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
