In this book aimed at early readers, an acclaimed contemporary cartoonist rebooted the classic character Eddie Spaghetti (Uri Kaduri), beloved by generations of Hebrew-language readers.
Eddie, accompanied by his big goofy dog, goes fishing in his goldfish bowl, saws the legs off a too-high table, and takes a bath with his clothes on! The bright colors, lively drawings, and sing-songy rhymes will delight young readers as they follow along Eddie’s lighthearted mischief. Originally created by Israeli artist Aryeh Navon and Lea Golberg in the 1930s, Rutu Modan offers her own playful take on this classic character for a new, international generation of young readers. These comics were specifically created for children age three and up.
“Israel’s most classic children’s book tells the tale of a mischievous boy and the trouble he gets into with his dog. Modan offers a loving interpretation rendered in her whimsical, retro style.” — The New York Times
“Modan's loose, expressive drawing is both tremendously evocative and precise.” — Publishers Weekly
