The Spaghetti Tangle
Alexander McCall Smith
John and Nicky have never eaten spaghetti and would give anything for the occasional bowl of chips or piece of chocolate cake. But they live with their rather strange aunt who insists upon health food diets. When they use some birthday money to go out for lunch, they experience the delights of spaghetti and decide that they simply have to have more. A competition offers them just such an opportunity, which results in their mealtimes changing for good.
