I Want Spaghetti!
by Stephanie Blake
Age Range: Under_5
I Want Spaghetti is another delightful offering from Stephanie Blake about Simon, the cheeky and mischievous little rabbit. Readers may have already encountered Simon in the hilarious bestselling Poo Bum (2012), followed by Stupid Baby (2013), A Deal’s a Deal and I Don't want to go to School (2014)
This time Simon has a passion for spaghetti; in fact, he has a spaghetti addiction because he won't eat anything else! His parents try to cajole him into eating other things but Simon point blank refuses and has a tantrum shutting himself away in his room. However, when he overhears that chocolate is on offer he changes his mind. As ever, with Blake's books there is a surprise at the end of the story.
Poo Bum was a hard act to follow but Blake has managed to create another funny picture book in the series about the adorable rabbit Simon. With its eye-catching, bold illustrations on a coloured background set against the black text, I Want Spaghetti is an excellent read-aloud book and perfect for all those fussy eaters!
