New York Times Bestseller
Best-selling author J. Kenji López-Alt introduces Pipo, a girl on a quest to prove that pizza is the best food in the world.
Pipo thinks that pizza is the best. No, Pipo knows that pizza is the best. It is scientific fact. But when she sets out on a neighborhood-spanning quest to prove it, she discovers that "best" might not mean what she thought it meant.
Join Pipo as she cooks new foods with her friends Eugene, Farah, Dakota, and Ronnie and Donnie. Each eating experiment delights and stuns her taste buds. Is a family recipe for bibimbap better than pizza? What about a Moroccan tagine that reminds you of home? Or is the best food in the world the kind of food you share with the people you love?
Warm and funny, with bright, whimsical illustrations by Gianna Ruggiero, Every Night Is Pizza Night is a story about open-mindedness, community, and family. With a bonus pizza recipe for young readers to cook with their parents, Every Night Is Pizza Night will make even the pickiest eaters hungry for something new.
Great book with gorgeous illustrations
Your kids will love this book and it’s great it encourages them to try foods and think in a more sophisticated way about what is “best”. The illustrations by Gianna Ruggiero really steal the show though.they’re beautiful and endearing and thoroughly engaging! We need more books illustrated by Gianna Ruggiero! And Kenji’s message for kids is so authentic and really helpful for enjoying food and in cooking in all its forms and traditions!
I have been a fan of Kenji since way back and this book is a glorious representation of him, packaged for small children. Diversity is important to me, one who grew up in a melting-pot suburb of Detroit and very much appreciates the influences and improvements other cultures have made to the quilt that is America.
