On Top of Spaghetti

On Top of Spaghetti

by Paul Brett Johnson Illustrated by Tom Glazer

On top of spaghetti
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed...

This well-known song is a hilarious reminder that when events don't go quite as planned, they can get awfully silly. Paul Brett Johnson's colorful language and folly-filled illustrations are a surefire recipe for a lip-smacking storytime. Served up with the original music and lyrics, it's sure to bring readers (and singers) of all ages to the table clamoring for more.
