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.
