In which Huey invents banana spaghetti for a Mother's Day breakfast-in-bed and fools his older brother Julian marvelously, among other things. When Julian gets a book on animal tracks and dismisses Huey's request to look at it because, J says, Huey isn't old enough, Huey sneaks peeks at the book, replicates the tracks of a zebra and an elephant leading up to the house, and has Julian agog for days and setting up zebra traps. When Huey isn't happy with the way his invention, banana spaghetti, looks and tastes and doesn't want to serve it to his mom for Mother's Day, Huey's dad (I love the parents in this book--firm with rules, patient with mistakes and concerns) praises the idea and helps him alter the execution, resulting in something the whole household finds tasty.

One mark of a good beginning chapter book for me is, if it's a series, whether I'm inspired to go read more. With many I'm not, but with Huey (and, recently, Dyamonde Daniel and Anna Hibiscus) I am.
