Many stories are written for children. Many have overt or subtle messages. This tale, The Search for The Spaghetti Tree, is a tale I have told to my grandchildren, and to many children with special needs at my school. It has always stimulated their imaginations and led to a whole variety of questions. Some of these now adults are telling the tale to their children. All laugh, not because it is silly, but because it demonstrates how courage and cunning can win over evil. Today, video games, television, and movies have taken away much of the imaginative play in our children. More books need be read, and more libraries visited. Hopefully this book will stimulate children to read more and to understand some of the basic principles of life.
