Hi, Pizza Man!by Virginia Walter
illustrated by Ponder Goembel
It all begins with a simple question posed by a patient mother when her impatient toddler shouts, ‘I’m hungry!’ ‘What will you say when the doorbell rings and we open the door?’ asks Mom. ‘Hi, Pizza Man!’ replies the thoughtful child. . . .(But) what if it’s a pizza woman?. . . a pizza kitty?. . . a pizza duck?. . . The book has a wonderfully satisfying roundness that comes full circle when the doorbell finally rings. —The Horn Book.

“In this simple, funny story, a young girl pretends what she would say to a variety of creatures, from a dinosaur to a snake, delivering pizza to her door.” —School Library Journal, 1998
“Working on this book was an adventure in using my imagination. I loved to think up all the different ways a pizza could be delivered.” —Ponder Goembel
