About the book

"A visual feast. . . .The electricity of the paintings will draw children back for a second look." —School Library Journal 


Working together at a family pizzeria goes from cozy to chaotic when the business expands and becomes a big fancy restaurant. No matter how he tries to be helpful, little Tony is now always in the way. He misses Little Nino's. But so does someone else—his dad! And in a delightful twist, this simply worded read-aloud delivers a thoughtful message about what success and family are all about. 

        Storyline connects easily to curriculum on neighborhoods, community, and economics.

“The scenes are full of visually boisterous activity, with under-pinnings of humorous detail and a clear sense of family closeness so important to the story. A decidedly fresh-looking book.”—Booklist
