9781455619221: Spaghetti Smiles

Every day after school, Jake visits his uncle Rocco at his Crazy, Mixed-Up Italian Restaurant, where Jake reads his newest books to Rocco and then they bowl with mozzarellas and play pick-up-sticks with spaghetti. When the restaurant needs a new neighbor, can Jake convince Mrs. Page to move her bookstore next door, so he and Uncle Rocco can still have fun and read together? Young readers will enjoy imagining what would happen if a wacky pasta restaurant and quiet bookstore became neighbors.

From the Inside Flap:

Every day after school, Jake hurries over to Rocco's Italian Restaurant to read his newest book to his Uncle Rocco. Along with sharing stories, Jake and Rocco play games together, such as bowling with mozzarella balls, "picking-up-stix" with spaghetti, and juggling ravioli.

When his uncle's restaurant is in need of a new neighbor, Jake goes on a search through the town to find the perfect match. Everyone fears that living next to such an unpredictable restaurant will ruin their business. Mrs. Page at the bookstore is Jake's last hope. Can he convince her to move in next door to such a crazy, mixed-up restaurant?

Vibrant illustrations evoke playfulness and laughter, making the meatballs almost roll off the pages! A silly and endearing story of pepperoni mouths and pizza faces, Spaghetti Smiles encourages families to read together and to get involved in their communities.
