This is a classic story about someone getting exactly what he deserves. If you haven't read it yet, you must! I don't want to give anything away, but it involves a LOT of spaghetti! Can you tell I love this book?!?! I'm using exclamation points on every single sentence!

But seriously, this is a really good book by one of my favorite author-artists. After you read this one you'll want more, and you'll be in luck. There's a whole bunch of books about Strega Nona and her assistant, Big Anthony.
