I personaly thought that the book was a little weird and I do not approve of beer or bad songs. I liked the book (exept the beer and bad song) and found myself wraped up in humor suspense and mystery.

Who would have thought a story about people turning into Pizzas would be so funny, especially when there is some mystery mixed in for good measure.  Vickie Johnstone, author of several other fun and witty novels will make you laugh with "Day of the Living Pizza."  Her character names alone will give you pause for a belly laugh. I'm glad to have stumbled on this story and discovered the Gage Project.  I hope it has been tremendously successful.

I couldn't help it, I found myself laughing aloud many times as I read this story. The idea of someone running down the street screaming while a giant pizza man chased her was both funny and scary. I struggled between wanting to eat a pizza and being laughingly grossed out. Vickie wrote this story as contribution to an anthology for the Gage Project. A project to entertain a child going through surgery with the prospect of a lengthy recovery time. Proceeds from this book will go to charity. This book definitely does its job. Too funny. I got this book off another site when it was free.

The Day of the Living Pizza is an amusing short story written for the Gage Project, a charity that raises funding for children's charities. It is a fun bit of escapism written in a very witty style about the ever popular food, Pizza and the importance of offering all possible toppings for it. Part zombie apocalypse and part young adult crime mystery and fully hysterical, this short work delivers many grins and chuckles as Detective Smart matches what passes for wits with a town of Pizza Zombies with limited vocabulary. Only quick thinking and a bit of Reductio ad absurdum saves the town from the Day of the Living Pizza menace.
