Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Early each morning, with her orange-striped cat at her side, Sally opens up her pizzeria. Before her customers arrive, she chops, stirs, and simmers her sauce; measures, mixes, and kneads her dough; and then assembles the delectable pies. Once they are in the oven, they fill her shop with a mouth-watering aroma. Soon hungry children surround her. Neighbors begin to call in their orders, but eating pizza right here at Sally's Pizzeria is best of all. At the end of a long, busy day, Sally and her cat enjoy a slice themselves. Cheerful, precisely composed gouache paintings accented with photo collages of fresh ingredients add warmth and humor to the story. Sally is a jolly, rosy-cheeked woman with an unwavering smile on her open face. Her amusing cat is depicted kneading and tossing the dough along with her, which will make readers chuckle. Children who like to help out in the kitchen will enjoy trying out the recipe included in the back.–Linda L. Walkins, Mount Saint Joseph Academy, Brighton, MA

From Booklist

PreS-K. Young pizza lovers will enjoy this charmingly illustrated story about the pizza-making process. Pizzeria owner Sally grows her own tomatoes and makes tomato sauce. Then she makes dough, layers ingredients on it, and bakes the pizza. Finally, to the delight of eager customers, everyone can eat. On each left-hand page, the text, featuring short sentences and basic vocabulary, is set within pizza-shaped white space ringed by items related to the story; opposite is a full-page picture showing Sally at work.^B Simply drawn cartoonlike illustrations, in bold, cheerful colors and patterns, fill the pages, incorporating occasional scanned images (pizza, tomatoes) for contrast and texture. There are numerous items to identify, from utensils to ingredients, though some details are puzzling (if Sally grows her own tomatoes, why do canned tomatoes figure prominently in visuals?). Still, young ones will appreciate the vibrant art and equally bubbly overview. The appended pizza recipe will get readers and listeners into the kitchen for more fun. Shelle Rosenfeld

Format: Hardcover
Some writer/illustrators can take a good idea and turn it into something a little special. "Pizza at Sally's" might have been a rather formulaic, linear account of pizza making, but Monica Wellington treats us to a superior pizza book. The winning ingredients include a unique artistic style, a clear, engaging story, and a tasty concluding payoff for either the rapacious or the reluctant reader.

The illustrations, "colored copies of photos, labels, and other ephemera" pasted on gouache-prepared paper have a toy-like quality, as if your Lego decals leapt from signs and trains onto the pages.. Coupled the informal font, the look is a relaxed photo realism. The combination is much warmer than most of the computer-generated images I've seen. Photos of Sally's (she's the pizza maker) tomatoes complement shiny drawings of patterned green leaves, and tall background buildings with luminescent colored windowpanes hint at the urban setting. "Sally the pizza maker grows tomatoes in her community garden in the city." This is an exciting setting for non-city kids who have never seen a rooftop garden.

Wellington also skillfully mixes farm scenes with their destination: The neighborhood stores where Sally buys her pizza ingredients. There's a beautiful, atmospheric picture of the cheese shop with giant company labels hanging from the wall, and there's an unexpected lower panel that shows us the cows grazing many miles from the cheese shop interior. It's a bold montage that works extremely well.

At 11:00 AM, Sally--with her ubiquitous cat smiling up at her--begins making pizza! It's homemade of course, "Cut, chop, stir, and simmer. There are good smells in the air. Sally makes her tomato sauce.

We LOVE the Monica Wellington books. She uses an incredible range of colors, and writes such charming text. We have almost everything she has written for children. This book is fun, especially for people who love pizza. She talks about all the ingredients and gives simple but whimsical illustrations to show how Sally makes her pizza. The cat and dog who figure in most books are also present. The text is simple for younger children (our daughter is a preschooler), and, as always, there are recipes at the back. A nice, simple, colorful read.
