Title: On Top Of Spaghetti
Author/Illustrator: Paul Brett Johnson
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Ages: 4 to 8Synopsis: Sometimes you want your spaghetti plain. And sometimes a spicy meatball is just what the chef ordered. When a fried fritter fricassee parlor opens next door to Yodeler Jones' Spaghetti Emporium and Musicale, owner Yodeler decides to upgrade the menu. But all it takes is one monstrous sneeze and the chase is one to catch the runaway meatball before it's too late!
Why you should read it: When I first started reading this book, I wondered where the story line would take me. But soon I was cheering Yodeler on as he dashed through the town and tried to catch that runaway meatball. Some readers may also feel a "gingerbread man" flair to Mr. Johnson's tale but with definitely a surprise ending!
