First they measure out the ingredients. "Ten cups of sugarF!" shouts Morris. "Five hundred choclate-covered chocolates!" roars Boris.
"A gross of donuts," Squeals Horace.
"And lots and lots of broccoli1" shrieks Doris
Everbody stops and stared. Broccoli? In a Massive Pudding? "Sorry," Said Doris.
It's too dry, sobbed boris.
It's too small, wailed Morris.
I'm hungry, HOwled Horace.
So Doris added one and a half puddles,
a bucket of squichy butter,
and a squid.
Then started to whick brickly.

Boris, Morris, Horace and Doris spy a recipe for a massive pudding after Doris begins to eat a cookbook. Utterly obsessed by food, the wild boars fantasize about ingredients and somehow manage to create an enormous pudding – which they subsequently eat in ‘ten seconds flat’ and in the rudest possible way. Still hungry they find a recipe for a massive cookie.
The appallingly badly behaved boars are good fun and the illustrations are very cleverly done (how would you illustrate a wild boar being selfish?) throughout. Some prefer the first book (‘Meet Wild Boars’) but I found this to be funnier and so did my kids. We still talk about pizzas ‘as big as the moon’!
I would recommend this book for parents with small children up to the age of six.
