Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
some food for thought Delivered in a miniature pizza box, Sam's Pizza by David Pelham is a round lift-the-flap book, topped with a sprig of paper basil and nestled in a paper crust. In the rhyming story, a crafty boy making pizza for his sister slips in some extras: a toad in with the mushrooms, a bee smothered with tomato sauce. Each right-hand page pictures a new layer of pizza topping, and lifting the flaps reveals the gruesome additions. Rhymes help readers anticipate the hidden items. The sister, by the way, gets her revenge. The sandwich-shaped, spiral-bound Messipes by Lynn Gordon, illus. by Susan Synarski, is a microwave cookbook of messy foods. The "sandwich" is inventively indexed with tabs shaped like slices of pickle, tomato, onion, cheese and lettuce. Brightly bordered laminated pages offer recipes for "Nutty Chocolate Fun-Do," flying-saucer-shaped "Eggstraterrestrials" and other treats.
