Teddy Spaghetti is bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank’s debut picture book, cowritten by her daughter, Victoria Benton Frank, about a young boy who is teased for loving spaghetti.

Teddy loves spaghetti. If he had his way, he would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (oh, and snack, too)!

On the first day at his new school, Teddy is nervous, and the one thing he can look forward to is the spaghetti that his mother packed him for lunch. When Teddy goes in for the first slurp, he hears a loud

Will Teddy give up his favorite dish or live up to his new name?

Dottie and Victoria Frank create an instant classic that teaches a lesson about bullying and not being afraid to love the things we love.

Dorothea “Dottie” Benton Frank was the bestselling author of twenty novels. She and her daughter, Victoria Benton Frank, joined forces to create their first book together, based loosely on Victoria’s son, Teddy.

Renée Andriani is an illustrator who works on everything from greeting cards to picture books. Andriani lives in the Kansas City area.
