Overview

In her sixth book in the World Snacks series, Wilson Sanger pays tribute to dishes from the Italian table. From hearty minestrone and risotto stirred and stirred with heart to sweet, cool gelato, Mangia! Mangia! Introduces young tummies to tasty treats from the land of linguini. Rhyming text and colorful collage art show that there's much more to Italian food than spaghetti! The back cover features a glossary of Italian terms used in the book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
What Amy Wilson Sanger did for Chinese food in Yum Yum Dim Sum, she now does for Italian food in Mangia! Mangia!, part of the World Snacks original board book series. From the freshly made fettuccine to the rag that tops it, the essential "stinky aglio" (garlic) and the gelato at the finito, these mixed-media spreads look good enough to eat.

Like others in the "Ethnic Food" series of board books, this one presents a variety of foods but this time with an Italian flavor. Of course there is pasta--fettuccini, capellini, ravioli; cheeses like parmigiano and formaggio; and meats such as mortadella and prosciutto. The picture of risotto is enough to make any mouth water, along with the concluding bowl of sweets. Lots of kids eat Italian food so this book will have broader appeal than Dim Sum and First Book of Sushi. The collage illustrations are clever and add to the fun. The back jacket has a glossary that defines the terms that will be of interest to kids and their caregivers. An offering that should whet appetites and encourage a trip to a local Italian restaurant. 2005, Tricycle Press, Ages 18 mo. to 5.
