The Delivery of Doom by Dan Yaccarino - OPTIONAL

Yaccarino, Dan The Delivery of Doom (Zoorgoochi Intergalactic Pizza), 319 pgs. Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan), 2014. $16.99.  Language: 0 swears, 0 “f”; mature content: G; Violence: PG

The book is about a boy of 12 named Luno Zoorgoochi who is training to take over his father’s pizza shop on his planet. He starts as the delivery boy for Zoorgoochi pizza and his adventure begins.

I liked the book because it was suspenseful, without being really scary. It was cool to see the world as Luno described it and how pizza was incorporated into everything, including taking over the universe.  I did not like how Luno didn’t go to many planets on his delivery boy job, and then the enemy pizza ships already deliver the pizza by then. There would’ve been no point of going in the first place. And the book said that the pizza orders were intercepted by the enemy ships, how is that possible? Do the people that order the pizza do a general broadcast for pizza? It doesn’t make much sense. Other than that, the book was good.
