When Alice's Aunt Polly, the Pie Queen of Ipswitch, passes away, she takes with her the secret to her world-famous pie-crust 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 donig something for the right reason.

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

    Do you like baking pie? Mysterys? Stuff in the 50's? PIE is the book for you! When Alice's Aunt Polly leaves her cat her world famous pie recipes, and her niece her cat, hilarity ensues! Warning: Book contains touchy subjects such as death.

        This book is a fun book that is great for ages 8 and up. This book is great for people who love baking with a mystery in it. You will never want to put the book down. Also, every chapter has a recipe of a pie so it is a cook book too. This is one of my favorite books!!!!!!!!!!
