Read full description of the books Maya's World: Angelina of Italy:Maya Angelou is an incredibly talented writer, and I never knew about her series of American Girl-esque books called Maya's World, each featuring a little girl from a different culture. (And each book comes with a paper doll!) This book in particular is about a little girl in Italy named Angelina who loves pizza and becomes concerned when she learns about the Leaning Tower of Pisa, thinking it's really made of pizza and that pizza will go to waste. I thought that the story was a little dumb, if kind of cute.
Maya Angelou is a wonderful writer, and her "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" series is one of my favorites. But it sure seems like she phoned it in for this one (and possibly the rest of the series).
