"Suzy has many favorite things but spaghetti, and only spaghetti, is what she eats. One day she shares her daily mountain of pasta with a cat, a dog, and a pig. The animals do not eat the long strands but use them as a fishing line, shoelaces, and knitting yarn instead. When they repay her with fruit, the child cautiously tastes an apple, cherries, and a banana and concludes that they taste almost as good as her favorite meal. Still hungry, the four friends return to Suzy's house for a spaghetti dinner...This is a simple, funny book that features vividly colored, stylized cartoons with an offbeat charm...It serves up a helping of every child's favorite dish just the way many kids like it--plain."
