In which Huey invents banana spaghetti for a Mother's Day breakfast-in-bed and fools his older brother Julian marvelously, among other things. When Julian gets a book on animal tracks and dismisses Huey's request to look at it because, J says, Huey isn't old enough, Huey sneaks peeks at the book, replicates the tracks of a zebra and an elephant leading up to the house, and has Julian agog for days and setting up zebra traps. When Huey isn't happy with the way his invention, banana spaghetti, loo...more

I think I'm done with Nicole Krauss. This is my second foray into her fiction, and though her prose is peppered with beauty and poetry, the plot and narration is so affected that no amount of artistry in language can overcome the eye rolling that accompanies her stilted and clunky plot and character arcs.

In this fun and funny series of short stories great for transitional readers, Huey doesn't have the easiest time of being Julian's younger brother, but Huey uses his imagination and creativity to overcome. Despite the siblings' quibbles, the family depicted is close, loving, and warm.
Huey is an adorable African American boy who uses his imagination to get the best out of his young life. His parents have clear rules, and Huey is learning to be a conscientious young man, but one who knows how to smile and have fun. Many of the lessons he learns were well timed with my nearly four-year-old son's level of maturity. The chapters are a little long for the younger age set, but overall, Huey is a great character for young children.a
A cute book that kids would enjoy. I especially like the banana spaghetti idea! Too bad my kids are a bit too old for this...but I may suggest this when they are a reading buddy to a younger child.
This is a cute chapter book for kids around ages seven to nine. It tells about things Huey does: eats fish and mushrooms at a restaurant, makes banana spaghetti for his mom, makes animal tracks outside and tricking his brother into thinking there is a zebra on the loose, walking to Africa (but only getting as far as the park.)

This is a nice early reader chapter book series. The author has written several other books about Huey's brother and friend, Gloria.
Stories told from the point of view of Julian's little brother, Huey. Love getting different P.O.V.s!
