I bought this for my young son based on the title because he enjoys reading aloud books that play with sound (what kid doesn't like to slurp?). But as it turns out, he loved the story even more because it contains a mystery, which kept him thoroughly engaged! He has just started reading books on his own before bedtime and THE SPAGHETTI-SLURPING SEWER SERPENT has become part of the regular rotation. He never seems to get tired of it!

This is such a cute book! My 4year old son got this book for his birthday and loves it. I have read it 8 nights in a row and even I'm not tired of it.

This is bound to be one of those books your children will request over and over at bedtime. The writing and illustrations are so silly and fun for both the reader and child. I have a feeling Laura Ripes is going to become a big hit in the children's book market.

What a great book! The main character, Sammy Sanders just knows that a spaghetti serpent is slurping up his mom's spaghetti in the sewer after she puts it down the garbage disposal. It's a really creative, tongue-twister that my 8-year old son enjoyed reading. I loved the characters and the bright colors that illustrate the book. So much fun...you should read it tonight!

Me and my 3 year old love this book! The pictures are bright and fun to look at with little surprises in the background of each picture (see how many pictures the serpent is hiding in). The rhyme is fun and a bit challenging to get through so reading it out loud is a combination of giggles at the story as well as laughing at Mommy's tied tongue. It is a cute story that moves quickly enough for a toddler and combines simple and more complicated words for appropriate educational development.

As an unexpected benefit, reading this story has made my son more aware that there are sewers all around us. He tells me he knows he has to be careful that he doesn't fall in because it is smelly, icky, and the serpent might just want to be left alone.

I have this book for Kindle but might buy a hard copy because we like it so much!

5 yo grand daughter loved it,, the print is small, for us old people,, not happy about that, or the kindle just wont make it bigger ( sometimes it will but is a pain to get back esp the new cheap kindle fire ) it is a tongue twister because all the kids name rhyme etc..

The colors are attractive and eye catching, and the story is entertaining. My three year old grand daughter gets the giggles every time we read it. She now tries to read it to me. It is a great book to share reading and laughter.

I gave this book to my 4 year-old nephew for Christmas. He absolutely loves the book as do the adults who read to him. When the letter 'S' day came around at his preschool, he asked to bring the book in. He came home with the book and a note of thanks from the teacher. She had read it aloud to the entire class, and every single child in the room loved it. I can't think of a better testimonial than that!
