Synopsis

Ugly Pie by Lisa Wheeler

Ol' Bear wakes one morning with a hankering for Ugly Pie, so he goes on a search from neighbour to neighbour. All he finds are pies that please the eye and...ingredients? Wait a second. Maybe it's time for Ol' Bear to start cookin' up something ugly himself! Ol' Bear shares that Ugly Pie with his generous neighbours-and he shares his secret recipe, too, in the back of this book. Lisa Wheeler's story is a joy to read aloud and some parts just beg to be sung. Heather Solomon's illustrations aren't the least bit ugly, but full of lovely details and charming bears with big ol' appetites for pie.

Reviews

Modern-day children...[will] like the gentle humor, the repetition, the compelling details in the pictures, and the folksy tone. --The Horn Book

If you're looking for a sweetened followup to a Stone Soup retelling, this offers a folklore-friendly slice. --Bulletin

Wheeler's rural dialect text is fun to read....Even better are Solomon's predominantly watercolor illustrations. --Publishers Weekly

The watercolor-and-acrylic illustrations pleasingly crowd the pages....Playful type adds swing to Ol

's ditty, while a two-page recipe completes the tasty package. --Booklist This humorous tale should appeal greatly to little cubs everywhere. --School Library Journal

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
