Based on the viral internet sensation Kobe Eats, Kobe pulls together all the ingredients to help make dinner for his family in this humorous picture book, Kobe Eats Pizza! by Ashley Wian and Cate Berry.
Chef Kobe is the star of the kitchen! With his signature red apron and red chef’s hat, Kobe is ready to make another meal—PIZZA! He uses only the finest ingredients, never spills, and is very patient when waiting for the timer to go off . . .
While cooking is super fun, Chef Kobe always remembers the last, most important step: eating together as a family!
This story is as animated and sweet as the popular videos of him cooking online for his family. Joy Ang’s illustrations bring Kobe to life, filling the pages with love and humor.
