Praise for PIE:* "Weeks deftly leavens moments of hilarity with the process of grieving in this sweet coming-of-age story in which Alice learns from Aunt Polly to follow her heart and to open it as well. 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....Warm, delicious and filling." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review"The text richly describes the pie-making (and eating) process and includes multiple mouth-watering recipes for readers to try themselves. This would make a tasty readaloud for classrooms or families; stock up on pie ingredients first." - BCCB"This enjoyable chapter book is a real charmer" - Booklist"Stimulates both sweet tooths and sweet nostalgia" - Publishers Weekly
