Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The story starts at the Ristorante Italia, where Tyler indulges in his favorite entrée, spaghetti and meatballs. Chef Lorenzo invites Tyler to the kitchen the next day, and he and dog Tofu start by making pasta. Then it’s off to the country for juicy tomatoes, fresh basil, and stinky onions and garlic. Giant cheese wheels encourage Tofu to take a spin on them. Once home, Tyler and his dad start making the tomato sauce, the meatballs, and, finally, the spaghetti. Yum! Except for ingredients, this is not too different from Tyler Makes Pancakes (2012), but the art here may be even better. Using a bright navy blue as an outline (and with plenty of red, white, and blue accents), Frazier’s visuals complement and extend the story. He adds humor as well, particularly in the form of Tofu, who is meatball crazy and will run with a spaghetti strand or juggle tomatoes (funniest is when he and Tyler make mustaches out of basil). The recipe and a fact sheet conclude. Even if the intended audience doesn’t want to cook themselves, they’ll be delighted by the story. Grades K-2. --Ilene Cooper

From the Back Cover

Tyler is ready for spaghetti!

So is his dog, Tofu, especially if there are meatballs involved. Tyler loves spaghetti and meatballs so much he wants to make it for his family. But how? Chef Lorenzo to the rescue! Together, Tyler and Chef discover that sometimes pasta comes in a box and tomato sauce comes in a jar, but with the help of pasta capes, basil mustaches, and a wonderful ingredient with the nickname "stinking roses," it's not only much more fun to make everything yourself—it's magnifico!

They showed you everything you want to know about breakfast in Tyler Makes Pancakes! Now let Tyler Florence and Craig Frazier take you on a trip around the world of everybody's favorite pasta. Then make Chef Florence's special recipe for spaghetti and meatballs and you'll see that, while the best ingredients come from all over, the best place to eat them is right at home with the people you love.

Format: Hardcover
In the same way that I loved Tyler Makes Pancakes! this one is just as fun! I love Tyler Florence, I love what he has done for children's food and education both at home and in the school systems. His education has been really a blessing to many and his cooking shows are humorous and make cooking fun and enjoyable, less than a chore. This book is cute and creative. It's like stick-figures with extreme personality and color and I like it. Take something like a spaghetti and meatball recipe and dissect it and explain visually for a kid what all the ingredients are and where they come from. It's a science project and a history lesson. I think that an entire series of these books from different simple recipes would be awesome. Interested in the same thing for pancakes, go back to Tyler Makes Pancakes!.

Cute book written by a real chef about a young boy who aspires to be a chef. It is tough to find books for boys who love to play in the kitchen. I have 2 of them (ages 2 & 3 1/2) and they were thrilled with this book. They now own all of Tyler's childrens' books and have watched his show Tyler's Ultimate on You Tube. Thanks for a book that features boys in the kitchen!!!

Our 4 year old has an absolute love affair with food and the kitchen, especially when she gets to help cook or bake. She has always loved cooking, learning, and eating, so Tyler's books are a perfect fit. The story is cute, easy to read, and full of fantastic explanations to get kids to not only love eating what they create, but it also cultivates an appreciation for ingredients and where to find them.

Prior to reading Tyler Makes Spaghetti, our daughter would only eat her spaghetti, meatballs, and sauce separately and would not allow them to be mixed. Now she insists that everything must be assembled, just like Tyler's dinner.

The fabulous recipe has been a hit with our family and friends, even those who say they will only eat sauce from a jar!

Thank you, Tyler! We're excited for the next book's release and hope that there are many more to follow!
