PIZZA CAME TO QUEENS
York : Random House, 1995
May's town, before there were frozen pizzas, and take-out pizza, and pizzerias,
there was hardly anything good to eat. But that all changed when Mrs. Pellegrino
came to town. When she arrived, she sniffed the air very hard and became
very sad. Mrs. Pellegrino couldn't speak English so the children couldn't
understand what was making her so sad. The children all thought she
was homesick, and worked very hard to cheer her up. They put on plays and
caught fireflies for her, but she never seemed really happy, because there
was "No pizza." Finally, May and her friends think of a surefire way to
cheer up Mrs. Pellegrino, and discover a new delicious food, too.
