Shortlisted for Children’s Book Award 2016, Books for Younger Children category Fabulous Pie is shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award, the only children’s prize selected by children. In the story a bear calls out to the other inhabitants of the forest for help filling a pie he’s making. Mouse, otter, badger and squirrel all help bringing him their very favourite foods, but somehow Bear isn’t satisfied… Readers will quickly guess what Bear really wants for his pie! It all builds, Gruffalo-like, to a rip-roaring climax with a narrow escape for the little animals and a well-deserved come-uppance for the bear! Children will love the pictures, the bouncy rhyme, the funny story and – most of all – they’ll like being one step ahead of the characters. A tasty treat indeed! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Fabulous Pie by Gareth Edwards

Deep in the forest, a very bad bear is baking a fabulous pie. All the woodland animals want to help him find the perfect filling, so they bring him their favourite foods: berries, nuts, honey and salmon. But the bear has a better idea for what can go in the pie ...the animals themselves!

With wonderfully humorous illustrations from the internationally bestselling Guy Parker-Rees and a superb rhyming text from Gareth Edwards, the creators of Never Ask a Dinosaur to Dinner are on fine form with this romp through the forest.

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