This favorite children's song, belted out around campfires for over forty years, is now a rollicking, sing-along book!

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.
