Who Wrote It?

Lara was born and studied in Northern Ireland. After graduating with a degree in Fashion Design she moved to London. She worked for magazines including ELLE and New Woman, before becoming beauty editor at J17. She currently lives in London with her family. 

 

What's It About?

It's no secret that 11-year-old Adam Butters is adopted. But when he thinks his parents don't want him any more, he decides to find his real mum. If he can just show her how amazing he is - how he can be a superhero! - surely she'll want him back. It takes a painful discovery for Adam to realise that you don't need to be super to be a hero.

 

Fact File

Every year on her birthday Lara wakes up at 5.30 am, which was the time she was born. Spooky! In her second book she made her character keep waking up at 5.43.

She was named after Lara in Doctor Zhivago.

She lives near Enid Blyton's house and also the cottage that was said to inspire Enid to write about Noddy’s Toyland house.

Stars, sequins and stripes pretty much sum up her entire wardrobe. She is determined to wear glitter forever and looks forward to growing old disgracefully.

Jasmine from Collingham LEH Primary School :

I loved this book because it was about real life and an adopted boy searching for his real mum. It made me feel lots of emotions but sad at the end when he had found his mum, then she went away without saying goodbye. Adam realised his adopted family were all he needed and loved him so much.

I'm rating this a 5-I have to.It was the saddest book I've EVER read.

He tried to make everyone proud of him and his best friend left to go back to Poland.His real mum left him-he wanted to make her proud by inviting her to a school project; she wasn't interested.While he was a baby she left him by a SWIMMING POOL.

This book was heartbreaking... A MUST READ!!!!!!

One of those books you dream of reading and all too rarely find.

I can't tell you how much I loved the book, Just call me spaghetti hoop boy! It is a heartwarming story about a boy called Adam, who is trying to find out who he is and where he really belongs;all Adam needs to do is know that he is where he belongs. There were emotional and inspirational parts in the book.It is well and truly One of the best books I have ever read.

Aaron from Rawdon St. Peter’s:

I really enjoyed the start of the book, it made me laugh. But as you go on it gets a bit boring because it goes on and on about him being adopted..when you get near the end you want to keep reading on because it builds a lot of suspense. Overall the story is quite good but personly I would like more of an action type of book, more than an emotion type of book.

This Book taught me that you don't have to be super to be a super hero,I thought the characters were very determined especially this boy called Adam who loved eating spaghetti hoops.

I really enjoyed this book and although the start was a bit boring I carried on and just really got into it! I could really relate to Minnie as she loves makeup and so do I! I would definitely recommend this book but for 8+ as it has a bit of childish humour more than teen humour! Overall this book is the best so I rate it 5/5!

Idalia from Grange Farm Primary School:

I kind of liked this book because it was funny and also a bit boring. I'm not sure if I would recommend this book to anyone. I really didn't like that Adam was unsatisfied with what he already had because that just made him seem greedy. Overall, I didn't like this book.:(

Ruby from Grange Farm Primary School:

I rated this book a 3 out of 5 because it was a bit boring but quite funny as well. I liked that all he wanted to do is make people happy . Also at the start he read the envelope that he wasn't supposed to read until he was 16 but he did it anyway. But it was very boring too.

Eliza from Westgate Primary:

Adam Butters is a very determined, adopted boy. Who always felt that a part of him was missing. He tried to fill the empty hole by collecting endless information about his birth mother, Rose, and selected information that proved he was unwanted by his adopted family. He constantly fantasised about being a happy family with his wonderful birth mother.

I found this book very hard to get into because the characters were difficult to identify and quite unbelievable to me. Personally, I didn't like the superhero element but I know other people might. I couldn't help but think that if he talked about it to his adopted mum things would have been ok. Over all this book had lots of important things to say, but the way Lara dealt with them did not connect with me. Despite this, I really enjoyed the use of similes.

I recommend this book for ages 9+.

Eliza gave Just Call Me Spaghetti-Hoop Boy 3 out of 5 and now plans to read The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.

Megan from Collingham LEH Primary School:

Adam Butters is just an ordinary boy, living in an ordinary street, in an ordinary town. Although his life may seem perfect, there is a piece missing from his heart. Soon its not only him that's affected, but his mum as well, who is hiding a big secret. To cheer her up Adam decides to become a ... superhero! After all, everyone loves a superhero, don't they? This is not one of the best books I have read, but I still think other people would enjoy it.

Oliver from Churwell Primary School :

Just Call Me Spaghetti-Hoop Boy, as silly as the title might suggest, is an amazing, emotional book. I haven't read Lara's other books, but, if what my friends say are true, they are as amzing as this one. With no doubt this is my favourite of the current three books I have read, because of its heartwarming story. In case Lara ever sees this, you are an amzing writer and you deserve countless awards. :)

Nyal from Five lanes primary school:

I really liked this book and enjoyed reading it.

It was incredibly written and I enjoyed the end bit because the adoption mum had a very nice and caring talk to him about how much he meant to her.

By the way well done Laura for creating a book of wonder.

kelsey from Hunslet St Marys:

This book is ok but it is a bit confusing because it barely mentions spaghetti hoops.It started off being really interesting but towards the end it started getting boring.I liked the bit when Adam found out where his real mum lived. I recommend this book to any age really.In my opinion I think this book is for girls and boys.Even though I did not really enjoy this book I would still read more books from this author.

This book was okay but it was a bit confusing because it hardly ever spoke about spaghetti hoops ! It was good but in some parts a bit boring and dragged out for to long.Personally I wouldn't recommend it but some people really like it . I would read another book by this author but this one wasn't quite my type .In opinion this is more of a boy book but girls can or might want to read it .

Lucy from Hunslet St Mary's C of E Primary School:

This book is about an adopted 11-year-old boy, Adam Butters who lives with his adoptive mum and dad, his two adoptive sisters Minnie and Velvet and Velvet's imaginary dog, Sausage Roll.

When asked to make a family tree for a school project, Adam begins to think about his real mother and why she left him. Meanwhile, he begins to wonder if his adoptive parents are having a baby and whether Adam would have to be re-homed.

This leads him to searching for his biological mother and his emotional journey of ups and downs whilst trying to become a 'superhero'.

Overall, this book was enjoyable,however, it lacked something which I cannot quite place. I would recommend this book to people who loves family orientated stories, but I myself didn't quite enjoy it as much as the other stories from the 9-11 category.

Samantha from Hunslet.St Mary's C of E Primary School:

I didn't really enjoy this book at first , I found it boring but when questions and mysteries started pouring in. I found myself enjoying it. Also the description was very creative and realistic.I gave it a 3/5 because I only really delved into it when the dramatic bits came in. As well I dislike the lack of spaghetti-hoops. This was a very good book when there was a choice in what to think the answer is! The story is about a boy adopted by the butters family and his first mission is to find his real mother but he ends up ignoring a few other people in his life. I recommend this book to an age group in between 10 and 13 as I think it can interest a lot more people.

Emily from Hunslet St Marys C of E primary school:

This is the best book so far!!!!I love the detail and the adventure he goes on because it was heart-warming and sad at parts. That is why I gave it 5 out of 5! I would certainly recommend this book to the ages 10-12. I would liked read more books by Lara Williamson.

Rosie from Shire Oak Primary School:

This was quite a good book. I liked it because when I looked at the front cover I expected to be about a super-hero like in comics but actually it's about a hero. My favourite character is Velvet because she is funny and very imaginative.

Isabel from Swillington :

I really enjoyed this book it had a lot of funny jokes in it. The book is about a boy called Adam/ace who feels like he doesn't fit in. My favourite part was the end. I would recommend this book for people who want to know how it feels to be adopted or like superheroes because being a superhero and liking comics is a rather large part of this book. I rate this book 5/5 because it was very heartwarming and heart breaking.

I enjoyed this book, some parts were slow paced. This book is really funny, it would definitely appeal to boys and girls and most ages. I wouldn't judge a book by its cover because it has superheros in but not that much. I would suggest this book.

Freya from Swillington primary:

Adam Butters is adopted and when Mrs Chatterjee sets a project on their family he wants to find out more his REAL mother.Unfortunately, along the way Adam accidentally discovers secrets about his foster family.Will he ever meet his real parents? I rate this book four because i really enjoyed the content and mystery;i think it could be read by lots of children and teenagers.I think the book might be a mystery book because of the amount of suspension it gives you and makes you want to read more of Lara's books she has written.I did not enjoy the sad parts but it would not of been excellent or breath-taking without them.I do not have a favourite part as all of it was great and i am really looking forward to reading my next book Letters from the lighthouse by Emma Carroll.

Jennifer from ST.Urbans Catholic Primary School:

Just call me Spaghetti-Hoop boy, is about a young boy (called Adam) who is determined to find out who his real mother is. This book was a sort of book that I would definitely like to read again since it was well written and was very adventurous. It was a thrilling roller coaster of emotions from the beginning all the way till the end. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries and emotional books. I would like to see the author write some more books that have a bit more descriptive language in; however, I would definitely advise the author to keep on writing, since her books are very fascinating.

Izzy from St Benedict's Catholic Primary School:

THE BOOK 'JUST CALL ME SPAGHETTI-HOOP BOY' WAS LIKE AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER: SPIRITS WERE HIGH WHEN ADAM WAS HAPPY, THOUGH THEY ESCALATED PRETTY QUICKLY IF THE CHARACTER'S EMOTIONS CHANGED. ALTHOUGH THE STORY WAS PARTIALLY SAD, I LOVED IT AS YOU CAN FEEL HOW THE CHARACTERS (ESPECIALLY ADAM)FEEL.

Jake from Southroyd Primary and Nursery School:

I think this book appealed to me in a very different manner from 'Who let the gods out' and 'The Explorer' as it was quite a sad story.

Adam thinks they want to find a new home for him and let the Jelly Bean (baby) sleep in his room!!

This is about Adam trying to find his real mum and asking if he will be able to live with her. Will he find her in time and will he want to live with her?

Mia from Beeston Primary School:

Just Call Me Spaghetti Hoop Boy was a brilliant book for me to read. In my opinion, there were never any boring bits and it was well written, especially from an eleven year old's perspective of the world. It does describe the characters at the start, so you know what is going on.

I think the story teaches that you can be anything and Adam Butters, who is the main character of the story, wanted to be a superhero. He does get into a lot of mischief but it's worth it in the end.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes fictional stories that include love, friendship, courage and general happiness. I would give it a 5/5.

Zoe from Green Lane Primary Academy:

This ia about a boy called Adam Butters. He has known he's adopted and has been happy with his adopted family yet a school project completely changed his life. This project was about a family tree. Adam decided that he wanted to find his real mother and find out more facts about her. This is a letter that Adam can not open until he is 16. He thinks there will be more facts about his mother and maybe all of his family. He opens the letter and gathers the information he needs. His mother's name is Rose Walkers. Adam's class went to the library to see if they can find more information. He searches Rose Walker to find information. Does Adam find his mother? Will he be happy forever? Yes? No?

Read the book to find out!!

My overall rating of this book is 4.5 as it was funny abd gave a lot of detail. I also understood it better than some of the other LBA books i have read. Best book so far!

Amelia from Lawns Park Primary School:

The front cover led me to believe that this book was associated with the comedy genre, however, I was disappointed to find that it wasn't very funny and was a sad story. Although this book wasn't my favourite, it has a very creative story-line and some very heart-warming moments in it. Overall, this book was not what I was expecting and I would recommend it for ages 10 - 12 due to the sensitive subjects covered inside.

Jacob from Swillington primary:

This is like a mystery with some comedy dotted about making it all the more intriguing.I like this book because instead of focusing on good description and grammar features it makes the story as interesting and as funny as possible.Adam is a foster child that has decided to solve his life mystery and track down his real mother. The only problem with this book is that there is just TOO little description so it is hard to visualise.If it had that then 5 out of 5 but it doesn't so just a heads up to the author try more adjectives or different sentence structures

This book is about a boy called Adam, who is trying to find his biological mum.

Minnie was my least favourite character as she was really mean to Adam in parts of the story. I wasn't as keen on this book as it was very depressing and sad. I felt there was perhaps too much drama and not enough description, which made it difficult to create a picture in my mind about what was happening.

This book is about a boy called Adam.He is adopted.Adam tries and tries to find his real mother throughout the whole book.Did Adam find his real mother?Adam was my favourite character because he wouldn't give up.The story kept me guessing a lot.My favourite part of the book was when Adam knew what was right.The full story gripped me.I liked it when one chapter gave me lots of information about one subject.This means that it was clearly detailed. This book kept me turning the pages.Sadly,I couldn't relate to Adam.One thing that I personally disliked was that it didn't have enough description.I would definitely recommend this book to people who like adventures.

This book was good and powerful but don’t be deceived by the cover because there is no mention of spaghetti hoop boy except for once but I would recommend it because it is a very good book.

I loved this book so much. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves superheroes. My favourite character is Adam because I love that he was determined to find his mother.

Ben from Liston:

I loved this book, (which I have finished) it was full of comedy but it was also quite sad which is a nice touch. Adam (Ace) thinks he is destined to be a superhero he even saved a life. That's all I will tell you. Remember you don't have to be super to be a hero!

It was not as good as I thought it would of been. It would have been better if Adem actually turned into a super hero called spaghetti hoop boy.

leo from greenhill primary school:

I really enjoyed Just call me spaghetti hoop boy because the way Adam tries to find his real mother and tries to be a superhero to make his adoptive mum happy. Though there are sad parts like when Adam finds out he was left by some bins by a pool and when tiny Eric (his best friend) moves away.

Jakub from Holy Family Primary :

I recomend this book to people who like very descriptive books as this book is filled with description. Overall,this book is what you call a slow burner but nearing to the end,its really emotional and it made me cry. Im giving it a medium review because it has way too much description for me and it takes a while to get into the the reading vibe. The main character is a boy called Adam.He is fairly nosy and likes spaghetti-hoops. Unfortunaly,I cant relate to him as im not nearly as nosy as him and I dont like spaghetti or spaghetti-hoops.

callum from otley all saints primary:

this book is interesting as it does not really grip you near the beginning but has quite a bit of an unequal balance of sad and happy moments mainly around three quarters of the way through with it mainly being sad but all and all I do believe you could of had a bit more description about Minnie and velvet.

but all that aside I do think this book could of been better with more information about the characters apart from Adam as his background was explained rather well for this book. well done Lara

kaitlin from holy family primory school:

this book was about a boy called Adam and he had a family that lived in a flat. Adam was adopted and throughout the book he wanted to find his real mother. I liked this book because it wasn't to waffaly about things. I did not like that the book was not that descriptive so you couldn't get a proper picture in your mind. I could relate to Adam because I like to sort things out and that is what Adam does. The story was straight to the point so you would wonder what was going to happen next. The story made me laugh because in every paragraph there was a giggle moment. I suggest you buy this book because it was amazing.

Thomas from Shire Oak CofE Primary School:

This book is about a 12 year old boy called Adam Butters who is an adopted boy who loves superheroes. When he reads an envelope which he isn't meant to until he's 16 he finds out his real mother is called Rose Walker and he is really called Ace. So then he wants to become a superhero and find his Mum. It is quite a sad story which is covered by bad jokes. It does have a moral - it doesn't matter who you are; you are still super. I rate this book 2 out of 5 because it was a bit depressing

Samir from Alwoodley :

This book was really good and sometimes you can't judge a book by its cover.

I would really recommend this book to people who like funny genres.At times it is a very deep book.There is only one word to describe this book.Amazing!

Book Review: Just Call me Spaghetti-Hoop Boy by Lara Williamson

Just Call me spaghetti-Hoop boy by Lara Williamson is a page turner, which caught my eye and I could not put the book down. It is all about a boy called Adam Butler, who loves spaghetti hoops and he wants to be a superhero. All through the book he and tiny Eric, who is very good at drawing, are trying to find Rose Walker, Adam's real mum. Reading the book I felt happy and sad, as well as, nervous and excited, as I hoped that Adam would find Rose. I definitely would rate this 5 stars and I would recommend this to children aged 8 and over.

Theo from St Urban's Catholic Primary School:

This book was very gradual and dull, the content was okay but when I continued to read, I was quiet engrossed by the plot line. Although, I give some respect to the author because it had humor in it. I would deeply recommend this book this to admirers of super hero's.

Johnny from Westgate Primary :

Adam Butters is an ordinary 11 year old boy who wishes to be a superhero. It's no secret that he has been adopted, but when he hears strange conversations around the house and believes he is not wanted, Adam sets out to find his birth mother. He tries to prove to the world that he is a hero, however, not all heroes have to be 'super'.

Although I enjoyed this book, I found Adam to be rather naive. He often misinterpreted or misunderstood things that people said, and this landed him in deep water. The book starts out simply, but gets eventually becomes dark and serious, which was interesting, if not a little random.

Peter from Shire Oak Primary:

Just Call Me Spaghetti Hoop Boy was a very moving story.It was definitely funny but without the humor it would just be a very sad story.It is really interesting how whilst the main character is trying to sort out his problems people are having there own.Somehow they make everything alright in the end.It is really worth reading.

Just Call Me Spaghetti Hoop Boy is a fantastic story for everybody to read! I enjoyed it because it was hilarious and touching at the same time!

Alex from St Urban's Catholic Primary School:

I enjoyed this novel: it was humorous and simple in it's grammatical features-yet this may be a drawback, as it was hardly pretentious; and had a lack of contractions. Personally, I found it dull, and the novel did not arouse much interest or curiosity to the reader until quite late in the plot-line. I wish there were more sophisticated grammar and complexity to the sentences. Nevertheless, I would recommend the novel to fans of mystery,humour, and excitement.
