What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Join a ragtag group of pasta as they complete the greatest escape of their lives in this hilarious new book by Miranda Paul! Since the beginning of their lives (which was earlier that morning), the pasta at the factory followed the rules. They stuck to their own kind. They stayed still in their packaging. And they never spoke to humans. That is, until they discover what it really means to be pasta: they will eventually be eaten by humans! Fettuccine is scared, Ramen is outraged, and Mac is just trying to keep the peace among all the pasta. Will they be able to work together to use their noodles and concoct a great escape?
