Pie

Pie

"But as Alice stood there gazing down at her Aunt Polly, she got the strangest feeling inside. She couldn't quite put her finger on it, but something was not right." A few more things are going to feel not quite right as the next weeks pass and Alice finds herself the heiress to a large, fat white cat named Lardo. Aunt Polly who has spent her lifetime making pies to give away to others has finally passed on to the great kitchen in the sky leaving behind a jealous, peevish sister, a grateful, worshipping niece, and a town with a sign proclaiming her fourteen, count 'em, fourteen Blueberry Pie Awards. This is a town known for its Pie and all because of the one and only Polly Portman. When Polly passed, she left her pie recipe to her cat, Lardo. Well, so the story goes anyway and someone is willing to go to great lengths to get that pie recipe even if it means going out on a limb, so to speak. With touches of humor, moments of mystery and a really great gal named Alice laying out the lattice strips, the plot thickens and the pie crust flakes. Who will bake the best pie? Who will win the Blueberry? Who has that pie crust recipe? Includes fourteen fabulous recipes for mouth-watering pies. A perfect slice for everyone. 182 pages Ages 8-12
