Spaghetti Hunters is a brilliantly funny and wonderfully silly picture book, featuring a duck, a tiny horse and quest for spaghetti, from the award-winning Morag Hood – creator of The Steves, I Am Bat.
Duck has lost his spaghetti, and Tiny Horse has a plan to save the day. But what exactly do you bring to a Spaghetti Hunt? A spade, a fishing rod, a jar of peanut butter, cutlery and some binoculars, obviously.
Searching far and wide, Tiny Horse catches worms, a ball of string, even a snake – but no spaghetti. Disaster! Until Duck consults a recipe book and armed with flour, eggs and a pasta maker, sets about making his own spaghetti.
This infectiously comic story encourages reading and home-cooking, teaching children about where food really comes from.
If you are looking for a story about a duck and a tiny horse hunting for spaghetti, this is probably the only one on the subject. Wacky and funny, with bright, graphic images in flat colour, it will make mealtimes giggly. — Nicolette Jones * Sunday Times *
