Mrs. Mungo gets a pasta-making machine for her birthday. Ava and Ben aren't as excited about it as their Mom. They prefer hamburgers and french fries with ketchup. While Mrs. Mungo prepares a huge ball of pasta to put in her new machine Ava and Ben get ready for school.

While Ava and Ben are at school Mrs. Mungo begins making pasta, but something strange happens. The pasta maker seems to have a mind of its own. It begins to make long, long loops of noodles. It worked faster and faster and soon noodles were everywhere in the house. The noodles wrapped around Mrs. Mungo and soon slithered under the door and down the sidewalk. Noodles were on the town and neighbors were scooping them up with saucepans.

It wasn't long before the noodles reached the school. Ava and Ben shrieked, “Oodles and oodles and oodles of noodles!” as they scurried home. You will have to read the story to see what happens next. ( )

What fun to read aloud! Ava and Ben's mom receives a pasta maker for her birthday - she is excited, the children are not. After Ava and Ben go to school their mom tries her new machine. It works too well, wrapping her and everything else up. The children run to her rescue.

The type style varies, emphasizing certain words and attempting to visually appear like the object they describe. For example, noodles is always in a loopy script style. Illustrations are detailed and colorful.

Consider reading it to celebrate World Pasta Day (October 25). ( )
