Tina's Diner

Illustrated by Joann Adinolfi

A child frantically searches for a plumber to save the day at a local diner in this exuberant, whimsical picture book.

Mighty macaroni! The dishes will be piled to the moon at Tina’s Diner if the clogged sink isn’t fixed in a flash! The only hope is finding J.P. Pettifog, the best and fastest plumber in town. So fast, in fact, that tracking her down is no easy task, especially in a huge bustling city where there are more pipes—in more shapes and sizes—than you ever imagined.

Join the search that winds through skyscrapers, the museum, and down into the sewer—but watch out for alligators!
