Publisher's Summary

When Alice's aunt Polly, The Pie Queen of Ipswitch, passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous piecrust recipe. Or does she? In her will, Polly leaves the recipe to her extraordinarily fat, remarkably disagreeable cat, Lardo . . . and then leaves Lardo in the care of Alice.

Suddenly, the whole town is wondering how you leave a recipe to a cat. Everyone wants to be the next big pie-contest winner, and it’s making them pie-crazy. It's up to Alice and her friend Charlie to put the pieces together and discover the not-so-secret recipe for happiness: Friendship. Family. And the pleasure of doing something for the right reason.

With Pie, acclaimed author Sarah Weeks has baked up a sweet and satisfying delight, as inviting as a warm pie on a cold day. You’ll enjoy every last bite.

Lovely story my daughter loved it.

Great read for my 5th grader. We listened in the car as she followed along in the book and we both loved it!

Wonderfully sweet story!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Pie to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version of Pie, but I loved the audio version so much I plan to pick up the print version to read the story to my kids one day!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how much Alice learned from her Aunt Polly, without even knowing it.

Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I had not listened to any of Kate Rudd's other performances prior to listening to Pie, but I do plan on looking into what other stories she has under her belt. She did a great job on Pie.

If you could rename Pie, what would you call it?

I think Pie was perfectly named!

Any additional comments?

Just an overall sweet, silly and fun story. Short and sweet, it made me happy when listening!

Finally got my daughter to listen to a story

I love reading with my 8 year-old daughter, and I love audio books. I have been trying to get her to get engaged by them, and this one did the trick. Wonderful story, great girl-hero, and each chapter starts with a recipe, which my daughter loved. My daughter has already listened to this story 2 or 3 times with no sign of losing interest. I'm sure we will make one of the pies together. Also, my daughter tends to get scared by stories or emotional drama easily, but this one was captivating without taking that too far for her.
