Deskripsi

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.

    Sweet book about young girls relationship with a beloved aunt, her parents and a boy she never would have thought would become a friend. Oh yeah, AND Pie. The yummy recipes at the beginning of each chapter are a wonderful addition. In fact, I HAD to make a chocolate cream pie from the recipe passed down by one of my sweet beloved aunts after reading this book. Weeks adds just enough mystery to get you turning the pages in anticipation of what is going to happen next.

    This was a really fun, feel good read. I think that both boys and girls would enjoy the storyline of this book but that, in particular, girls could benefit from Alice's strong, independent character. Unlike many books with female lead characters, Alice is the brains of her friendship with Charlie. In addition, the book advocates for finding the value in one's individual gifts, which is a wonderful lesson.

    Grades 3-5--Alice has spent at least a little of every day of her 11 year old life at her Aunt Polly's pie shop. When Aunt Polly passes away unexpectedly, the absence of her sweetness and generosity make it feels like the life has gone out of their little town. But quirky Aunt Polly's will confuses everyone: she leaves her grumpy white cat, Lardo, to Alice, and she leaves her super secret pie crust recipe to Lardo! Suddenly, there's a lot of interest in pie crust recipes, and Alice doesn' t know who's responsible for strange break-ins and disappearances around town. But as she makes a new friend and the town works together, they may all find that Aunt Polly's sweetness is inside them, waiting to be discovered. A charming and completely satisfying story on all levels!

    I finished this delightful novel about 15 minutes ago and now I'm dying for a piece of coconut cream pie. Sarah Weeks has written a funny and touching story with an entertaining mystery thrown in along with the apples, peaches and pie crust. Sure it's geared for middle readers, but take a chance and read it. I know you'll enjoy yourself. Yes, PIE certainly takes the cake! Groan!

    When Alice's Aunt Polly, award-winning pie baker, dies suddenly, it throws her entire small community for a loop, but it affects no one more than Alice. Polly was the one true friend that Alice had, the one person who loved her just as she is, and now Alice is floundering without her. To make matters more confusing, everyone is going crazy looking for Aunt Polly's perfect pie crust recipe. In her will, Aunt Polly left it to her cat. Reading this book definitely made me hungry with its mouth-watering descriptions of Aunt Polly's pies. It's a short, sweet tale of a young girl coming to grips with her grief and figuring out the recipe for moving on.

    Pie is the story of Alice, whose Aunt Polly was a master pie-maker. When Polly dies, she leaves Alice her cantankerous cat Lardo -- and she leaves her famous piecrust recipe to Lardo. While Alice is devastated over her aunt's death, the rest of the town is engaged in speculation about the pie crust recipe, which could be sold for a great deal of money . . . but how did Polly leave a recipe to a cat? Hijinks ensue, including cat-napping and pie thievery, and Alice and her friend Charlie find themselves with a mystery to solve.This whimsical little story is reminiscent of Kate DiCamillo's writing, though not up to that author's standard. Each chapter is prefaced with a different pie recipe. The pacing of the story is slow at the beginning of the book, and the characters are not well-developed -- even Alice seems to be defined by her quirks, rather than those quirks being an expression of her personality. All in all, a pleasant but forgettable read.

    I'm not one for kid books, but I have to admit, this book was great! I purchased my copy of the book back in fifth grade but I haven't read it until now! I feel like the book was baked perfectly into nice little edges! Alice's and her mom's relationship in the end killed me and the whole LaRdO situation with the recipe was hilarious! You should read this book!

    Reading this book made my mouth water! I wanted my favorite pie, blueberry, but I also found myself wanting other types of pie, too. This book is fast and unique. I loved trying to solve the mystery along with Alice and her friend. I think kids between the ages of 8-13 would find this book to be a must read. Anyone who is a fan of pie will enjoy it, at any age! Each chapter starts with a recipe, which include tips for making it. I am hoping to try making some of these pies. How fun! I met the author, Sarah Weeks, when I was at the Children’s Book Fair. She was so nice and funny! She told me that if someone makes a pie, takes a picture of it, and sends it to her she may put it up on her blog. How cool is that?

    This book was an absolute delight to read !

    I would have loved it when in 3rd or 4th grade and am pleased that now in my mid 50s I got immense pleasure from reading it.

    I am happy to see wonderful stories are still being written today and even more pleased that I have never loved my childlike traits that I can be thrilled to bits over a kid's book, rather than always reading adult material.

    A story as sweet as the title, with fourteen pie recipes to boot!

    Narrated by Kate Rudd. Alice’s beloved Aunt Polly is the queen of pie-making in Ipswich, Pennsylvania, winning the coveted Blueberry Award 13 years in a row. Her sudden passing stuns and saddens the townspeople who loved her pies. In her will, she inexplicably leaves her coveted pie crust recipe to her cat Lardo, whom she wills to Alice. Almost everyone in town tries their hand at pie-making in the hope of filling Polly’s shoes but a mysterious person goes a step further to try and snare the pie crust recipe by catnapping Lardo and ransacking Polly’s store. I enjoyed the sweet lightness and simplicity of Rudd’s narration. She vividly brings out the personalities of the main characters through expression, emotion and pacing.

    Lardo is a fat and disagreeable cat to most, but loved by Alice’s Aunt Polly. When Polly passes away, she leaves her prize-winning pie crust recipe to Lardo and Lardo to her beloved niece Alice. The whole town is up in arms! They miss Polly, but they especially miss her pies, and they want to know how Polly made the crust. It is a mystery, and some unsavory sorts show up in town in search of the recipe. Alice and Lardo may be in danger and no one can find the recipe! A cute story with just enough intrigue to keep you interested in what happens next. The pie recipes at the beginning of each chapter just add to the charm of the book. A great book for kids, but adults will like it, too.

    A fun novel that 4th - 6th graders would enjoy reading. Alice's Aunt Polly is a master baker- she is famous for her pies which she has won numerous awards for. She doesn't bake pies for money- people bring her ingredients and she turns them into pies. When she dies, she leaves her grouchy cat, Lardo, to Alice. Everyone wants to know her secret pie crust recipe but Polly's will is very vague- a mystery to find out where the recipe is ensues. It is a heartfelt book that celebrates friendship and family. A fun read.

    Pie by Sarah Weeks is a tween historical fiction about a girl, a cat and a missing pie crust recipe. Alice, the girl, has inherited Aunt Polly's cat, Lardo (think of Crisco) and her famous Ipswitch pie shop (think the Pie Hole from Pushing Daisies). Her will, though, says that she left her award winning pie crust recipe to Lardo.As you can imagine, Lardo, the highly disagreeable cat, is cat napped. Alice does everything in her power to find the cat, while her mother tries to master the recipes (even though she shows no talent or interesting in baking).With each chapter there is a pie recipe. The afterword includes information on how the recipes were collected. I didn't try any of the recipes — as my daughter and I already have our own selection of favorites. I will, say, though, that my daughter makes a pie crust that could rival Aunt Polly's
