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. --Laurie von Mehren, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Parma, OH Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
Spaghetti makes the world go round; leastwise it does in this silly, jazzy tale that tips its hat to the unconventional in us. The story has a good, zippy tempo and the waggish art makes it all seem possible, capturing Eddie in his cool, maverick glory.
A kid's devotion to his favorite food is taken to dizzying heights and unusual purposes. Urbanovic uses thick black lines and curves and angles to delineate shapes and surfaces; her faces are mobile and exaggerated. Best of all, she captures the thick, red essence of spaghetti sauce, which covers Eddie's fingers and every strand of his useful pasta. --GraceAnne A. DeCandido

My preschooler cannot get enough of this book. He picked it out of the library and laughs every time we read it. He loves it and I think it’s great too. The multi-cultural illustrations are also a refreshing change! -Donna
The text is fun to read. The delightfully comic illustrations rendered by Jackie Urbanovic are even more fun to look at. I read this book to my daughters every day. Now letting my daughters eat spaghetti every day is another story! -Michelle
It has a very funny text and well written plot that keeps the reader interested. Plus, if you have a young child, you can do activities with them after reading this book. (For example, think of other ways to utilize spaghetti or new adventures Eddie can go on.) -Christopher
