Illustrated by Michelle Berg
"As the pages turn, readers will undoubtedly grow curious about the round, flat, red object the mice are assembling—and they'll get a kick out of the answer." — Publishers Weekly
"Mice, with construction-worker garb and gear, build and enjoy a full-size pizza. Fluid and often clever verse narrates the action: 'Crew arrives at break of day. Get to work, right away!/Put on those construction hats. Roll that mountain nice and flat.' (The mountain here is a mound of pizza dough.) Each double-page spread, except for the first, features movable parts, allowing readers to manipulate the machinery. A spin dial turns the roller of the steamroller or the barrel of a cement mixer (from which issues tomato sauce). Each sliding panel has a hole or indentation for little fingers’ ease of use and moves a loader, makes the 'dozer spread cheese, tows the pizza from the oven and removes a slice from the pie.... In gray, orange and yellow hues and drawn in her flat, graphic cartoon-style, Berg's friendly mice and clear depictions of vehicles are pleasing and recognizable.... there are enough details here to hold the interest of most truck lovers." — Kirkus
