Grade 1-3-Kevin Spoon and Mason Mintz, best friends from Doodle Flute (Macmillan, 1991), are back. Mason convinces Kevin to walk the six miles to Exitville to attend the opening of Spaceburger, a new fast-food restaurant, which Mason claims is far superior to the numerous burger places in their own town. So the friends set off, singing a song about lovely ravioli, and when they arrive, they are not disappointed. Pinkwater shows himself to be, as ever, a master of understatement, but the offbeat element usually present in his books is strangely muted here. While there is an eerie, spacey quality about the restaurant that lends an otherworldly aspect to the essentially simple story, there seems to be something missing at the end. Bright, felt-tip marker drawings are appealing, although some appear unfinished. Like a fast-food meal, Spaceburger might leave some readers unsatisfied, but pick it up for fans.
