When my brother was young, he couldn't say spaghetti. This meant that whenever my parents read him a book they had to change spaghetti to Getti-Getti or else he would have a meltdown. He loved two books as a kid - one was Strega Nona, but the one he really loved was More Spaghetti I say.
I hate that book. It is burned into my brain.
I really hate it.
Honesty, if you want to ban a book about pasta it should be that one. Stupid monkeys.
But since Strega Nona is about witch, it gets picked one.
Always out to get us Italians - cooks, mob, witches.
