9780152463212: Little Nino's Pizzeria

This exuberant picture book tells the story of Tony, a little boy who helps his father in the family pizzeria. “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

About the Author:

KAREN BARBOUR lives in Iverness, California. She is also the illustrator of  I Have an Olive Tree by Eve Bunting,  Let's Talk About Race by Julius Lester, and Poetry for Young People: African American Poems, edited by Arnold Rampersad and Marcellus Blount.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Although Barbour's pleasant story is only meager fare, her paintings are a visual feast. Young Tony proudly tells of how he helps his father, Nino, in his pizzeria until success causes Nino to open a large, fancy restaurant, where Tony is in the way and Nino is too busy for him. All ends well when Nino misses the smaller operation and reopens his pizzeria. The gouache and watercolor illustrations in wild tropical colors have a kitschy, 1930s look to them and show hommage to many artists of that period. Faces bring Leger to mind; swirling lines and rounded shapes are reminiscent of Matisse; glowing stars and moon recall Chagall. There are also fauvist and cubist influences throughout. Lettering and bold patterns mix with flat blocks of intense color in crowded scenes that express the big city atmosphere through their vitality. The electricity of the paintings will draw children back for a second look, even if the story does not have a comparable impact. David Gale, ``School Library Journal''
