From Our Editors

Pete is a normal, healthy boy, but he’s decided to become a pizza for awhile. It starts out with Pete’s dad kneading the dough-- he’s really just rolling Pete around on the table-- then sprinkling some oil on the dough--the oil is just water-- and then adding some tomatoes-- really checkers-- and then...tickling the dough! Pete’s a Pizza is a delightfully irreverent look at the games Pete and his parents play, illustrated in a comic strip format for young readers.
