A family dinner gets out of hand as guest after guest arrives with a different pasta request in this “delectable” (Kirkus Reviews) and rambunctious rhyming picture book. How much pasta is too much pasta?

Ring-a-ding, the doorbell rings, and oh! What did my Nonna bring?

Nonna Ana from Catania only likes to eat lasagna. But Nonno Titi from Tahiti only eats his spaghettini! Zio Tony wants ravioli, Zia Trini wants rotini, the cugini want tortellini… Family dinners can be tricky when the guests are oh-so-picky! As the kitchen gets more and more chaotic, can family pasta night go off without a hitch?

Praise For…

* Lucido’s bouncy rhyming lines are a pure joy to read aloud, and an abrupt comic turn at the end that marvelously maintains the rhyme scheme is sure to leave little ones hungry for repeat reads (and pasta). A playful pick, superb for group story time.
