'Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party' by Kimberly & James Dean is a cute story about friendship and learning to appreciate different foods. While Pete is content with pepperoni, his friends are interested in trying pretzels, papaya, pickles, and more on their pizza. Despite their questioning of the options presented to them, all of the friends open themselves up to the possibilities that the variety of toppings brings. With the way that kids are often reluctant to try new foods, this book helps to show that trying new things is not necessarily going to be bad, and you may just surprise yourself and find out you like something you never thought you would.

Other fun aspects of the book include alliteration in the repetition of the letter “P” since all of the toppings begin with that letter, and the fun activities the characters get to do as they spend time at the pizza party. The illustrations do a very nice job of bringing the story to life for readers. Another nice addition to a picture book bookshelf, especially if one likes the 'Pete the Cat' series of books.
