From School Library Journal:
PreS-Gr 1-A long, meandering tale about playing with and in your food. A small boy who goes by the handle "Victor of the Noodle, grand knight of the Order of the Macaroni" is called to supper by his patient and enabling mother. Victor imagines that his bowl of fish soup with its floating slice of bread is a swamp that he must cross in his spoon/boat if he wants to reach the safety of the island. Upon arrival, he discovers that the isle is not the haven he envisioned. Various adventures ensue, including fleeing a pepper dragon, dodging flying carrots and peas, and being captured by the Bad Fairy Zoop and taken to her castle. His mother comes to her son's rescue every time. After surviving all the imagined dangers, the boy finally realizes he is hungry and eats his cooled soup and elegant dessert. Boldly tinted watercolor illustrations are the highlight of this story that's too wordy for its intended audience. Wearing a cape and a colander for a hat and carrying a wooden sword, Victor acts out his fantasy life. The pictures foreshadow what adventures are in store for the child: a goldfish bowl with a miniature castle, a dragon emblem on his T-shirt, and carrots and peas floating in the bowl. A lot of melodrama over a bowl of soup.
