Pete's a Pizza

Pete's a Pizza

by William Steig Illustrated by William Steig

Pete is upset when the rain keeps him from playing with his friends, but when his father offers to turn him into a pizza, Pete's day becomes much more exciting.

Pete's father starts kneading the dough (that's Pete). Next, some oil is generously applied. (It's really water.) And then some tomatoes. (They're really checkers.) When the dough gets tickled, it laughs like crazy.
