Review by Magnet Elementary student L.B.
“It’s about a boy who is not supposed to touch a pasta pot. He touches it. He hears Strega Nona say a little magic spell and it makes noodles pop up in the pasta pot or it makes pasta come. It’s really funny. At the very end he makes a whole bunch of noodles and it floods the town and it’s really funny. Strega Nona finds out and she gets all the pasta away and she’s really mad at Anthony. It’s a really funny story and it’s a really good story.”
