Pippa loves pasta. It’s actually one of the few things that this kiddo will eat (most of the time) without putting up a fight (most of the time). Parents of toddlers, you know what I’m talking about. Pippa also loves books. A lot. So, when the opportunity to read and share a Pasta Kidz & Pasta Petz Adventure book arose, I jumped. I thought that this book could be a big success in our home.
I was right!
‘The Pasta Kidz™ a and Petz Adventures’ are humorous, zany, magical and chaotic stories that bring together the pasta-themed Kidz – including Sarah Spaghetti, Rikki Ravioli, Camilla Cannelloni (above) and their creative Petz – Mumbo the Macaroni Dog, Spud the Spaghetti Horse and Val the Vermicelli Snake (above) together in unusual circumstances, engaging with strange magical objects that have a life of their own. The songs, music and humour, told in specially invented pasta language, will engage 4-to-7 year olds in a fantasy world of friendship.
The plots and messages reinforce how the Kidz are unique, with different personalities and their own needs. Each tale shows how they help each other, usually with their own individual Petz, and throughout the series we see how their personalities and friendships develop especially when encountering new characters, like the evil and huge Pasta Beasties!
In The Inventing Tubes, the first Pasta Kidz™ adventure in a series of up to forty books, Sarah and Marc Macaroni try their hand at inventing fun objects – and get a very grumpy PastaBall to play football with. But Sarah proves that the sport is not just for boys and she tries her hand at inventing her own ball! Every highly-branded Pasta Kidz™ and Petz story, illustrated in beautiful, full-colour detail, contains a moral message and will both inform and entertain young readers. ~via Goodreads

Pasta Kidz & Pasta Petz: The Inventing Tubes is a wildly creative adventure book, first in a series of 12, that is full of silly rhymes, fantastic illustration, and adorable pasta catch phrases. This book is entirely unique and makes for a fun read aloud book that the whole family can enjoy together. I mean, you try saying “Spaga spoodle spo!” without a giggle. I dare you to try!
Pippa is only 2 1/2 but she is pretty clever and picks up on things. Even though this book is written for 4-7 year olds, those silly catch phrases and jokes were not lost on her. She smiled and laughed along as I read to her. Bryony Supper understands the mind of a child and has written an exciting adventure that they will want to enjoy time and time again.
Perhaps, my favorite thing about this series is that not only do you get fun-to-read books in the Pasta Kidz & Pasta Petz Adventure series but you also get valuable life lessons. These don’t go unnoticed. Now, while the life lessons are my favorite part of the story, Pippa loved the Pasta Petz the most! And all of the wonderful illustrations! The colors are vibrant and the characters are so much fun to look at. There really is something for everyone!!
Thank you so much to Bryony Supper for sharing this wonderful story with us. We can’t wait to see where the adventure goes next!
