Noodleheads See the Future by Mitch Weiss - ESSENTIAL

Weiss, Mitch Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss Noodleheads See the Future, illustrated (and co-authored) by Tedd Arnold EARLY READER. Holiday House, 2017. $16. 9780823436736

Mac and Mac are brothers (noodles) who take everything literally.  They go to help their uncle but can’t “give him a hand” or “listen up” or understand that the job isn’t an actual “piece of cake”  This being said, they want to help their mother (who might bake them cake) so they go into the forest to gather firewood, but instead of collecting it, they cut it from a live tree which is dangerous.  When their friend meatball warns them that they will fall, and then they do, they are certain Meatball can see the future - allowing Meatball to make further fools of them.

A delightful early reader chapter book, with some good life lessons, awesome illustrations and even some source material at the end.  Well done!
