About The Inventing Tubes by Bryony Supper
‘The Pasta Kidz(TM) and Petz Adventures’ are humorous, zany, magical and chaotic stories that bring together the pasta-themed Kidz – including Sarah Spaghetti, Ricki Ravioli, Camilla Cannelloni (above) and their creative Petz – Mumbo the Macaroni Dog, Spud the Spaghetti Horse and Val the Vermicelli Snake (above), together in unusual circumstances, engaging with strange magical objects that have a life of their own.
The songs, music and humour, told in specially invented pasta language, will engage 4-to-7 year-olds in a fantasy world of friendship. The plots and messages reinforce how the Kidz are unique, with different personalities and their own needs.
Each tale shows how they help each other, usually with their own individual Petz, and throughout the series we see how their personalities and friendships develop, especially when encountering new characters, like the evil and huge, Pasta Beasties!
In The Inventing Tubes, the first Pasta Kidz(TM) adventure in a series of up to forty books, Sarah and Marc Macaroni try their hand at inventing fun objects – and get a very grumpy PastaBall to play football with. But Sarah proves that the sport is not just for boys, and she tries her hand at inventing her own ball!
Every highly-branded Pasta Kidz(TM) and Petz story, illustrated in beautiful, full-colour detail, contains a moral message, and will both inform and entertain young readers.

My review of The Inventing Tubes by Bryony Supper
I received a copy of The Inventing Tubes by Bryony last week and was looking forward to reading with Jayne.
I found the cover to be striking, lovely bright colours which are really eye catching.
The characters were strange but loved the idea of having pasta characters.
There were the Kidz and also the Petz and I must admit, looking forward to learning more about each of them as the stories unwind.
I loved the rhyming that Bryony added to the story, this always makes it fun for children when reading, it keeps their interested.
The illustrations were again very bright and eye catching which will keep the younger reader engaged.
I love how the story showed that everyone is an individual and to show about helping others.
Check out Jayne’s review over on her blog.
