reSchool-Grade 2-A long strand of spaghetti, blotchy with tomato sauce, takes children from the title page to the first page of the story. Thanks to his bowl of noodles and his desire to help, Eddie comes home a hero when his mother sends him to the store for frosting for his father's birthday cake. On the way, he meets three neighbors with problems (a broken shoelace, a broken fishing rod, broken guitar strings), and he comes to their aid with his spaghetti. At the store, he stops a robber with the only thing left in his bowl, a meatball. Back home, all of the grateful neighbors are celebrating the birthday-and Eddie's heroism. The pictures tell a parallel story, too, of a hungry little dog that follows the child closely through his adventures and finally gets some pasta. The thickly lined drawings capture the lighthearted spirit of ingenuity and neighborliness. This charming tale moves at a quick enough pace, with large pictures and succinct text, to work for a storytime.
