Famous for her pasta parties, Noodlephant is shocked when the law-loving kangaroos decide noodles are only for them! Noodlephant won't let this stand--Noodlephants can't survive on sticks and branches, after all. Determined to do something to push back against an unjust law, she and her friends invent a machine that transforms pens into penne, pillows into ravioli, and radiators into radiatori. With that, the pasta parties are back! But that very night, the kangaroos come bounding through the door... ready to enforce their unjust laws. A zany tale full of pasta puns, friendship, and one Phantastic Noodler, Noodlephant, written by Jacob Kramer and illustrated by K-Fai Steele, explores a community's response to injustice.

Steele's illustrations have me SOLD on this political, creative and probably (& unfortunately) polarizing picture book. Elephant's pasta parties and her friends walking through the neighborhood are as cheerful as the powerful "deep pocketed" kangaroos are genuinely scary.
There is a dark, Handmaid's Tail vibe running through this rather silly story.
What a weird book!
