Pizza Pete and the Perilous Potions

Pete loves the pizza shop, where he lives with his dad, and is terrified of the outside world. But when a new restaurant steals their customers, Pete and his friend Anna have to come up with an INGENIOUS plan to sell more pizzas, otherwise he’ll be forced to move. When they find a mysterious briefcase in the attic, they create the most extraordinary magical pizzas, and soon a queue of customers snakes down the road. But can they make enough money in four days to save Pete’s home? Throw in an exploding headmistress, a fire-breathing dog and a vengeful bully and Pete’s life soon ramps up from Margherita to Spicy Pepperoni!


‘It has all the reckless fun of George’s Marvellous Medicine… a lively upbeat story that is as enjoyable as a Sloppy Giuseppe with all the toppings’

The Times Children’s Book of the Week

‘Perfect ingredients for comedy chaos’

The Sunday Express

‘This debut novel touches on serious issues like mental health and bullying in a sensitive way, and the humour throughout doesn’t belittle these. Instead the reader roots for Pete and Anna as they ricochet from one magical mishap to the next.’
