KIRKUS REVIEW

Two dragons in Fairy Tale Land decide to open a pizza shop. BeBop cooks, while Spike serves as the speedy delivery dragon. Readers have the opportunity to guess who ordered each pizza from the types of toppings they choose: “One giant pizza, with a topping of magic beans,” must be for the beanstalk giant, and Spike makes his delivery via hot air balloon. Tiny rose-petal pizzas must be for Thumbelina, while candy pizzas could be for none other than Hansel and Gretel, and so forth. Spike’s mode of transportation changes with each delivery and includes a rocket, roller skates, a unicycle, a skateboard and, for his big finale, a motorcycle ridden on a high wire. Those with a love for reptiles, amphibians and/or mollusks may want to skip the pages where they are ingredients, but otherwise, Morgan’s delightfully colorful artwork brims with details that will capture the attention of young readers. This playful addition to any fairy-tale collection will be a hit in storytimes. (Picture book. 3-8)
