Book Summary

When Alice's Aunt Polly passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily surly cat Lardo... and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.

Suddenly, Alice is thrust into the center of a piestorm, with everyone in town trying to be the next pie-contest winner... including Alice's mother and some of Alice's friends. The whole community is going pie-crazy... and it's up to Alice to discover the ingredients that really matter. Like family. And friendship. And enjoying what you do.

Media Reviews

"With pie recipes introducing each chapter, Weeks's (As Simple as It Seems) novel stimulates both sweet tooths and sweet nostalgia." - Publishers Weekly

"Starred Review. Readers will close the book with a satisfied sigh and may seek out an adult to help them bake a pie." - School Library Journal

"Starred Review.What do you get when you take some scrumptious pie recipes, stir in a mix-up of a mystery involving an overweight cat and a legacy, then add a sly satirical nod to the Newbery Medal? This irresistible confection." - Kirkus Reviews

"The author brings the story full circle with Alice grown and the godmother to a new Polly, who has a talent for baking. Readers will sigh with satisfaction." - Children's Literature

Very fun
I read this book for my book report and it was pretty good! I recommend it to girls because i don't think any boys would be interested in it.......But there is a character in the book name Alice Anderson and she can be stupid sometimes in the book

Pie
In my opinion this was the second best book for the Sunshine State Readers (it is a book thing we do in Florida). Pie just really wasn't my style of book.I feel like the Sunshine State books are getting worse and worse,when I was in 3rd grade the teachers chose really good books like Janitors, Wish Stealers, and The Candy Makers - I'd recommend these books instead of Pie.
