A pop-up book of a noodle circus displays the talents of Stan Manicotti, Yoni the mad macaroni who shoots herself out of a cannelloni, and Eddie Tubetti the spaghetti juggler.

Noodles ($15.95; May 31, 1996; 20 pp.; 0-694-00842-7): A rare product indeed: a novelty item that doesn't rest on gimmickry, but balances artistic and literary content with eye-popping surprises. The concept is so absurd that it guarantees a wonderful time: A batch of Italian pasta noodles performs as a pop-up, 3-D circus. The macaroni shoots himself from a canneloni cannon; the gemelli does a hula dance; there are spaghetti jugglers and a manicotti muscleman. It's a special treat to watch green-tongued Brownie von Ziti chomping down a batch of flaming fusilli. The performance is accompanied by a dollop of saucy rhymes (in trochaic dimeter) that keep the action flowing. This product's shelf life is reduced only slightly by its inherent fragility; still, this is a hearty feast. (Picture book. 3-8) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.Review:
A pop-up book of noodle shapes is an intriguing topic: here the shapes are fun and whimsical even as real definitions of ziti, fusilli, and others are presented to kids. Many an adult will find this educational and fun as well. -- Midwest Book Review
