Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
It's easy to work up an appetite reading this book, which offers an agreeable way to pass the time before dinner. When Vivian tosses her toys aside to announce, ``I'm hungry!'' her mother reminds her that the pizza man is a-coming, and distracts her by asking how she will greet him. The title holds an obvious answer, but Vivian's mother imagines other possibilities-``What if it's a pizza kitty? Then what will you say?'' This prompts Vivian to welcome a parade of imagined pizza-deliverers with ``Meow meow, pizza kitty!''; ``Woof woof, pizza dog!'' and so on until the doorbell rings. First-time children's author Walter's waiting game grows more entertaining when the animals arrive; it's tempting to say hello with moos, hisses and quacks. Likewise, Goembel's (A Basket Full of White Eggs) mom's-eye views of Vivian appear realistic but slightly awkward, while her lifelike ink-and-acrylic animals, framed by a doorway, are considerably more engaging. The final illustration, of a partly eaten slice of cheese and pepperoni pie, looks particularly authentic-readers' thoughts, like Vivian's, will likely turn from pizza beasts to a pizza feast. Ages 2-4. (Mar.)
Children's Literature - Meredith E. Kiger
A little girl plays a name game with her mother to make the long wait for the pizza man go more quickly. Mother suggests that the pizza man may not be a man, but, in turn: a woman, a kitty, a dog, a duck, a cow, a snake and lastly, a dinosaur. By the time the game is over the pizza man rings the bell and the little girl answer the door, "hi, pizza man." A silly story which you have to be four years old to enjoy.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1To pass the time while waiting for a pizza delivery, Vivian's mother asks her what she will say when it arrives. That's easy enough: "`Hi, Pizza Man!'" But what if it's a pizza woman? Things get silly as the child's mother suggests ever-more improbable delivery charactersa cat, dog, duck, cow, snake, and dinosaur. Her daughter responds with "`Quack quack, Pizza Duck!'"; "`Roar, Pizza Dinosaur!'"; etc. Readers will be having so much fun that they may feel jarred back to reality and even a bit disappointed to see the most obvious of the options when the doorbell finally rings. However, the story will have wide appeal, from toddlers just learning animals' sounds to beginning readers who will grasp the zaniness of the situation. The realistic art has abundant whimsical details and invites close examination. The pizza woman wears a baseball cap and evening clothes, complete with a mink stole. The cow is truly exotic, with purple markings and a rose in her mouth, and the dinosaur is a thing of beauty, crowned with a feathered pillbox hat. The typography also sparks interest, with a different style and various sizes of lettering used for Vivian's greetings. A nice example of positive parent-child interaction and of the imagination needed to entertain a hungry preschooler, this story has the predictability to make it a great read-aloud.Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA

    Delightful!

    I've read this to all my pre-school (toddlers to 3 year old) children. THEY LOVE IT! The element of surprise makes the book easy to read with expression. The concept of waiting for something to happen is a secondary theme. The pictures are fun and enhanced by encorporating great sound effects!

    One that Children will reread alone and with others

    It's as popular, if not more, than 'Brown Bear What do you see?' in my house. If you're looking for a book they use everyday this is one! It is such a fun and simple idea!

    Our Favorite Book

    I read this to my preschoolers (2year olds) all of the time. It is absolutely their favorite book. They love to make the animal sounds. We recently showed it to the local librarian and now she uses it for her storytimes.
