Apparently you can buy it for $0.01 on Amazon.
"What I didn't realize when I was writing the book was that 'spaghetti' is such a delicious word." says Charlotte Doyle. "And after I introduce it in the first pages, you don't see the word until the very end, like a treat."
I am afraid to quote the book, because quoting a sentence would be like quoting a third of the book. Here's the ending:
"And Freddie ate spaghetti. And Freddie ate spaghetti. And Freddie ate spaghetti... [turn page] Until it was all gone!"It's haunting, really. I highly recommend having someone read this book to you. Especially if you're three-years-old.
After lunch, tennis, and a journalism pow-wow in the library, I went to a Sarah Lawrence StorySLAM.It was structured exactly like a Moth StorySLAM, so I wrote my name down and put it in the hat. The theme of the night was "Fear."
For those of you who don't know, a StorySLAM is a gathering where people tell true stories about their lives. They have to pertain to the theme of the night, and they cannot be longer than five minutes.
I told the story of how I was suspended for five days in high school (ask me about it sometime, it's great). I had been preparing to tell this story at The Moth in New York City, where the theme ("Jokers") was more appropriate, but I was able to twist it a little so it had to do with "Fear". It was a success, and I think I am more prepared to go to The Moth someday soon.
Right now eating peanut butter and mini-wheats. Bon appetit.
