Shhh! If you like pizza, parties, and clandestine gatherings (by necessity, of course), Secret Pizza Party is the book for you. Sometimes you need to be proactive when it comes to pizza - okay, all of the time. The raccoon protagonist, a modern everyman, will do anything and everything in the name of celebrating pizza.

If you loved Dragons Love Tacos, then this is a book for you! Adam does it again with this hilarious pizza loving raccoon.

When you're a raccoon who loves pizza, the whole world is against you, and they have brooms. Desperate times call for desperate measures! But maybe you shouldn't get ON the buffet table...? Just a thought. This is completely ridiculous but Rubin and Salmieri have you rooting for the raccoon at every turn.

p.s. We liked this way more than Dragons Love Tacos. :)

Rubin is a master of throwing in brilliant non sequiturs while Salmieri adds flair in the form of used mitten stores and the raccoon's private diary of the times he ate pizza.

Poor raccoon, all he wants in life is some pizza.

Three and a half stars and I'm rounding up because I love Adam Rubin. This was not as good as "Dragons Love Tacos," (and if you have not read that book, what are you waiting for??) but it was very cute and fun.

For the chance to eat pizza, this raccoon will try anything, even throwing a secret pizza party. For the silliest of reasons he risks brooms, capture, and raccoon-sniffing robots, but boy is it worth it.

The desire to eat a favourite food is put into new light, and no animal could better represent this than a scavenger that everyone considers a pest. The design of this creature only modifies his sneakiness, for his features have a long black mask, and at one point he even wears a disguise.

The story progresses in a concise manner, starting with his troubles, why he wants pizza, the plan and why it must be secret (he is right, secret things are better than their regular counterparts), and the conclusion of said plan.

All-in-all their is little point to all this beyond just being a funny jaunt with a pizza-loving raccoon.
