Arthur McBain , Illustrated by Chrissie Krebs
Night of the Living Pasta is a hilarious adventure about the consequences of not eating your dinner.
Grace would prefer to go to bed unfed than eat her spaghetti bolognaise. When her dad warns her that wasting her dinner has grave consequences, but Grace laughs him off and trots off to bed. But then she hears sounds from the kitchen - she investigates and is met in the kitchen by ... a monster made entirely of spaghetti bolognaise! Her dinner puts up a good fight, but Grace has one move up her sleeve that it doesn't see coming.
A fun rhyming story coupled with equally fun illustrations that kids aged 3 and above (and their parents) will enjoy.
