The book opens with a family having a picnic, and the mother sees a wishing star. She says, “I wish for world peace-ah, ah, ahchoo!” A sneeze is sparked by a nearby tree. Her children think she’s said “world pizza” and apparently the wishing star does, too. Peace is brought about, for at least a day, when people all over the world experience pizza dropping out of the sky. It is enough to bring about momentary peace.
This is a great picture book not only for preschoolers, but also for school-aged children.
