Bruno gobbled up Mom's macaroni. It tasted so good! Then he saw something in the bottom of the bowl. Something was hidden in the cheese. "Ah!" he screamed. "There's green in my macaroni!"

"It's just zucchini," Mom said. "Just a tiny little bit."

"It's green!" Bruno put down his spoon. He wasn't hungry anymore.

Bruno is a boy with particular tastes and ideas. He will not, for example, eat anything green. He spends one day as Sir Bruno and another as the Queen. He is an entrepreneur and he understands the language of Car. Bruno is a boy worth knowing.
CM Magazine - March 21, 2008

Times-Colonist - March 2, 2008
"[Bruno] is witty and willful...A seven-year-old using this to practise reading aloud with a parent will have them both laughing."
Resource Links - February 1, 2008
"A very enjoyable and humourous story."
Canadian Children's Book News - February 1, 2008
"Adderson writes with poetry, colour, and a real flair for zany description that lends itself to being read aloud."
