Summary: This book is about a girl named Lucy who is a bit different from her classmates in the sense that she has big, curly hair and likes to eat spaghetti in a hot dog bun. Thank to her Papa Gino's wise words, Lucy is able to understand that her differences make her special. At school Lucy gets teased by one of her classmates, Ralph. One day, Ralph gets stuck on the monkey bars and Lucy helps him out because she finds the courage do the right thing.

Media: watercolor

Critique:
Spaghetti in a Hot Dog Bun is an excellent example of contemporary realistic fiction because it is relatable. For example, many students will be able to relate to Lucy's character who gets teased by one of her classmates. Also, students may also relate to the relationship between Lucy and her Papa Gino. ( )
