Join in the fun at this delicious dinner party, where good manners aren't on the menu! Duck won't eat his carrots. Moth's eating the cloth, and Sheep would rather sleep than wash the dishes. Thank goodness some of the animals know how to behave. Even the smallest toddler will enjoy the wonderfully silly animal antics in this book -- you've never been to a dinner party like it! Trademark Julia Donaldson rhymes and rhythms are perfect to read aloud, and Nick Sharratt's mischievous and funny illustrations make the bright and playful Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose a sure winner. Just right for toddlers! Look out for: Hippo Has a Hat, Animal Music, Toddle Waddle and Goat Goes to Playgroup.

A fantastic book for younger children, encouraging their sense of rhythm and rhyme. It is a fun 'story' where the animals have tea together and need a little nap after all the excitement!

I picked this book up at a car boot for 20p and i would not hesitate to pay full price for it! It is a book that flows through a meal situation with various animals around the table commenting on the food. The rhyming is pure genius and the illustrations are bright and full of colour. It's a well thought out book. My son loves joining in with it - the words are easy to remember because of the rhyming.

My granddaughter loves this book. Her facial expressions when greedy goose eats the mousse,she pretends to eat the peas and carrots and blows on the macaroni. It’s a constant favourite and one I think I will have to buy. Not sure there won’t be tears when I return it to the library. As all children like rhymes I am sure it would be a big hit and they learn about the animals

Have been reading this book to my eldest daughter ever since she was a baby- it's perfect to help learn different animals and foods and the rhyming & colours are very engaging. Brilliant as a reader to do different voices for the animals too "Ill lick the bowl says furry mole" and it's great to think that as my daughter's get older, it's a book they'll be able to read themselves :)

This book will really make you laugh. It has such bright and fun illustrations by Nick Sharatt and such wonderful rhyming sentences which are always present in any Julia Donaldson book. All different kinds of animals appear in this mealtime scene. From a Gazella to a Kangaroo. Our favourite has to be '"Macaroni", says Shetland Pony.' It's very clever how the story flows with one simple sentence on each page. We loved this book.

This is a fun, easy read that's perfect for when you want a quick story. The rhyming text is so simple that it's not long before little ones are joining in.

It's an ideal book for animal lovers as it brings together a whole host of them at a dinner party. Some of the animals do some very silly things, which delighted my toddlers.

The pictures are cheerful and vivid - ideal for capturing young children's attention.

A must-read for toddlers!

Really lovely story of animals and food. My daughter loves it as she can recognise the animals and most of the food. It's also really sweet that the animals peek in from page to page (this makes sense if you read it!). The rhymes are not to long which is great when my daughter doesn't have much patience (which as a 22 month old is common!). One of my favourite Julia Donaldson books.

A brilliant rhyming book for young readers. Very good rhymes and funny pictures that made us laugh. Not too long and so would be good for those with a short attention span!

This was one of the first pepper story books, as opposed to picture books,  that I bought when my children were small and also our very first by julia Donaldson.  It is a rhyming story,  not too many pages and about meal time for a bunch of animals. 

Good introduction to animals and to julia Donaldson. A great first story for little ones 12-18 months up.

This is a short and simple rhyming book and great for young children. I would say this book is suitable for children aged between 1-3. 

It is quite a short book so the book needs to be read more than once, usually straight after. 

Lovely bright pictures and lots of different animals in the book.
