A beautifully illustrated book with the highest quality glossy pages i've not seen before! This book was a big hit with my ketchup fan, he laughed out loud at the strange food combinations Ruby ate and also agreed with quite a few too! I do love how it is illustrated and allows my son to see as well as hear the story unfolding and he could join in at certain points of the story. There is even educational points included which brought up questions we could discuss with the map & as we are also growing tomatoes at home, you can guess what he wants to do with it!!!

This is such a fun book, with great rhymes and a really funny story. My 3 year old loves ketchup so we really enjoyed reading this book and joking about what would happen if he ate as much ketchup as the girl in the book! There is nothing my son doesn't like about this book, and it's good fun to read as a parent too

This is a brilliantly funny story and is a joy to read aloud. The story (about a child who is obsessed with ketchup) is told in a fast paced rhyme. It exaggerates throughout the book and really gets your tongue in a twist. There is a repeated 'chorus' that makes the book so easy to join in with too. We adored the hilarious illustrations that really shoe the reader just how much the child loves ketchup!! It's got an extremely believable ending too!

We thought this book was great - so much fun.

It details all the different meals that the little girl has ketchup on even with custard and my son took great delight in grimacing at the things he thought sounded yukky, and with a familiar page for each time the little girl shouted more ketchup please he was able to join in and participate.
The book has a great rhythm and flows really well, the pictures are lovely, its a really nice book to read and is a good length and is perfect for any ketchup fan

Now lo is 5, he wants to start contributing to reviews!!  He says “ I don’t like ketchup”,  “I like shouting “I WANT MORE KETCHUP PLEASE” and “I like ‘gloop’ written in ketchup” “ruby is rude and silly”.

We all enjoy this book..even if we don’t all love Ketchup!!!

What a fun book! My son & I absolutely loved this book and laughed out loud at it more than once. It has really nice bright illustrations and the pages  of the book are excellent quality. If your child likes ketchup, & rhyming books, then you must give this a read!!

I enjoyed reading this book to my 5 year old daughter and she giggled throughout the story,  of a girl who is obsessed with ketchup. She demands more ketchup and her parents go to any lengths to get her more ketchup.my daughter joined in with the girl shouting for more ketchup. She was still talking about the book the next day.

The story flows quite well and my 4 year old thought it was very funny. But as a parent trying to stop having ketchup with every meal, it doesn't send a good message. I would have prefered a healthier ending too.

Hmm, it's ok.  

The story is quite fun.  The best bit for me is the world being turned upside down to find more ketchup.  It brings a ridiculous element to Ruby's love of ketchup.

The drawings are fine...but he definitely needs to work on his colours.  I didn't get on with all the primary colours thrown at the page.

My least favourite bit is the rhyming couplets.  I have a theory about rhymes...they mustn't be too perfect.  When they match exactly it gets really tiresome.  If you have ever heard an Italian pop song you will know what I mean.  We need a bit of dissonance otherwise it starts to cloy.

So basically I don't love it although you couldn't really say it was a bad book.  I suspect it is one that will get read a couple of times and then ignored accidentally on purpose.
