Noodlehead Nightmares

Noodlehead Nightmares
By Tedd Arnold and Mitch Weiss
Illustrated by Tedd Arnold
Holiday House, 2016. Comic. unpag.
Mac and Mac are real noodleheads.  No, seriously, their heads are made out of noodles, macaroni noodles to be precise. Though they try to hide the fact by wearing hats, there really isn't anything up where their brains should be and it shows in the decisions they make.  Don't like making your bed? Sleep outside instead.  Lose your feather pillow? Try sleeping on a wooden chest full of feathers. Arnold understands the sense of humor of 1st or 2nd graders, and is careful to write the text to match his target audience's reading level. The color comic-book style illustrations just add to the fun.  Kids who like Arnold's Fly Guy will love this silly new graphic novel series
