A worthy message, drawn perfectly by Frazier, whose illustrations could work without the words.


Food Network star Tyler Florence is back with another picture book showing where food comes from and how it’s made.
In Tyler Makes Spaghetti!, Tyler and his dog, Tofu—the heroes of Tyler Makes Pancakes!—want to prepare their favorite meal. The pair go to Chef Lorenzo Mascarpone for information on making spaghetti and meatballs. They imagine a trip around the world to gather all the fresh ingredients for pasta and tomato sauce. Then it’s back to the kitchen where Tyler discovers that cooking his favorite food is as much fun as eating it!
Playful full-color illustrations by Craig Frazier, a Did You Know? section with cool facts, and Chef Tyler Florence’s recipe for spaghetti and meatballs make this a delicious choice for little foodies and picky eaters.
