Review by Booklist Reviews

Geisel Award winner Pizzoli serves up fun in this high-interest helping for early readers, with a pizza rat (perhaps a nod to the now infamous video of a New York City pizza-loving rat) acting as guide. Simple text introduces basic pizza terms before looking at the origins of this popular food (Americans eat 350 slices every second!). The focus is on pizza's Italian roots, including the suspicious arrival of the tomato in Europe, the legend of the Margherita pizza, and the spread of pizza to the U.S. due to Italian immigrants and demand from WWII soldiers returning from service in Italy. The rat also presents pizza varieties across the country and around the world. Topping it all off are Pizzoli's lively digital illustrations featuring round shapes and patterns and rendered in the colors of both the Italian flag and the Margherita pizza: green, white, and red. His fans will enjoy a concluding scene with look-alike characters from previous books partaking in a pizza feast. Finally, the rat dishes up a mini pizza recipe to young foodies. Preschool-Grade 2.
