About the Book

★ 2018 Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book ★

Tedd Arnold, the guy who does Fly Guy, and renowned storytellers, Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss, have done it again: the wacky Noodlehead brothers, who first appeared in Noodlehead Nightmares, are back for a second adventure that brings folktale tomfoolery into the 21st century!

Although Mac and Mac are as hollow-headed as, well, noodles, they are certain Mom will bake them a cake if they gather some firewood for her. In the woods, they run into cousin Meatball, who tricks the Noodleheads out of their hard-earned kindling with imaginary clairvoyant powers. Oh no! Fortunately, the gullible Noodleheads unwittingly accomplish an even greater task for Mom—and earn their beloved cake, after all!


★ "Emergent readers will appreciate the simple text, short chapters, and comics-inspired paneled illustrations. Two delightfully dense heroes bring folk tales into the 21st century, and young readers are all the richer for it."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ "The cartoonish artwork captures the over-the-top feeling of the narrative perfectly. Children will doubtless ask for more titles starring the hapless brothers . . . A funny and lighthearted addition to early graphic novel and beginning reader collections; fans of all things goofy will devour the noodleheads."—School Library Journal, starred review
