ROCKY BOBOCKY, THE PIZZA MAN by Emily Ellison
CHILDREN'S
Released: April 26, 1996

Some appetizing ingredients have been whipped up into a familiar plot that starts out hot and cools in the delivery. The characters are fresh enough: Rocky, a fun-loving, singing pizza- maker, is a terrible businessman with no eye for the bottom line; Betty, the math-whiz mother across the street, wears herself out working for an accountant and has no time to cook for her six kids. Betty's kids order pizza every day until she gets laid off; the inevitable solution takes ten pages to put into place. Bolling, in a style that recalls some of Julie Vivas's work, injects pizzazz into every scene, often with a profusion of pink pomodoro. (Picture book. 5-9) Read full book review >
