Illustrated by Tedd Arnold, whose Fly Guy series is a kid favorite, this graphic novel is perfect for comic fans and reluctant readers, with short, funny chapters following Mac and Mac through ridiculous adventures. Full of wordplay, jokes, and slapstick humor, the Noodlehead series is sure to delight.
Although Mac and Mac are as hollow-headed as, well, noodles, they’re always coming up with brilliant schemes. For instance, they’re absolutely certain Mom will bake them a cake if they gather some firewood for her. But when their friend Meatball offers to trade them a handful of firewood seeds, the gullible brothers can’t foresee what will happen next. . .
Based on traditional world folktales and stories of fools, the Noodleheads also encourage critical thinking, inviting kids to usetheirnoodles– spotting the holes in the brothers’ grand plans, and anticipating how things will go awry.
This easy-to-read series is an accessible introduction to stories of fools, and a great next read for fans of the Fly Guy books.
