Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 4
What did you like about the book? Brief informative text and bright cartoon illustrations trace the evolution of pizza, including attitudes on tomatoes, as it was modified over the centuries. I like that there is humor amongst the information, through facial expressions and thought balloons. “Memory Game” at end.
Anything you didn’t like about it? There is no one of color represented in the entire series. This volume could use a few more dates throughout the narrative to understand what happened when.
To whom would you recommend this book? Offer this to early graders interested in food.
Who should buy this book? Elementary school and public libraries
Where would you shelve it ? 641
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
