Sterling Children’s Books
June 2017 New Release

Bring on the Peace-ahh!
When Momma spots a wishing star, she starts to ask for world peace — but a sneeze changes “peace” into “peace-AH-AH-AH-choo!”
Suddenly, yummy pies of every kind come drifting down from the sky. That’s not exactly what Momma had hoped for, but could it achieve the same goal? With humour and heart, this delicious picture book celebrates the things that truly bring us together.
In my opinion, you can never have too many books and that is especially true when it comes to beautifully illustrated, imaginative picture books. World Pizza is a wonderful book with an inspiring message, with a lot of silliness in between. World Pizza brings everyone together with a common love: PIZZA! People in big homes, people who have no home; people in big cities, people in the smallest town; pirates, bullies, and angry neighbours.
Of course, World Pizza is not actually about the pizza (although it makes me want to order one). Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the world was full of peace, and love, and kindness, and everyone was happy? World Pizza? World Peace! And, like all good Bedtime Stories, it all ends with a happy ending.
