Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
This "delicious" book is a title in the popular "Step-into-Reading" series that will delight beginning readers, from preschool to first grade. It's an updated version of the old nursery rhyme, "This is the House that Jack Built." With a familiar rhythm and catchy rhymes, Gelman tells the hilarious story of a creative pizza maker, his pizza pan full of gooey, chewy ingredients and a hoard of hungry neighborhood mice. Terry's bold, full color illustrations add a humorous flavor of their own. Enjoy!

PreS-Gr 1 Set to the familiar rhythm and cumulative rhyme pattern of "This Is the House That Jack Built," this beginning reader describes the sloppy cheese, spicy sausages, gloppy sauce, and floppy dough that are cooked into a pizza and enjoyed by dozens of mice, much to the cook's great disappointment. However, in order to make the rhyme work, the pizza is cooked in a "tray" rather than a pan, and the sausages are described as "choppy." Also, some of the words are not easy for beginning readers. Still, children will be carried along by the rhythm and the lively, colorful, and somewhat exaggerated illustrations.
