The Pasta Kidz are back with the big news – Gilbert have made a Pastaball which will be used in the real Pastaball™ game – watch out for further details! The Pasta Kidz™ and Petz Adventures are humorous, zany, magical stories that bring together the pasta-themed Kidz – introducing Victor Vermicelli and Lola Lasagne (above) and their Petz – Val the Vermicelli Snake and Lopscotch the Lasagne Rabbit together in unusual circumstances, engaging with strange magical objects that have a life of their own. The songs, music and humour, told in a specially invented pasta language, will engage 4 - 7 year olds in a fantasy world of friendship. In The Sorry Sticks, the second Pasta Kidz™ adventure in a series of up to forty books, Victor Vermicelli and Val the Vermicelli Snake have been speeding in a ‘No Snake Lane’. When The Big Ticket arrives to tell them off, they call on the Pasta Petz and the Sorry Sticks to help them. After they have shown that they’re really very sorry, The Pasta Kidz and Petz celebrate with a Pasta Parade, full of wonderful music from their pasta instruments. Every highly-branded Pasta Kidz™ and Petz™ story, illustrated in beautiful, full-colour detail, contains a moral message and will both inform and entertain young readers. 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 pet, and throughout the series we see how their personalities and friendships develop especially when encountering new characters, like the wicked and huge Pasta Beasties!
