Great book! A wonderful story of grief and growing. Very touching, funny and sweet. It has some yummy pie recipes that I'd love to try!

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.

This book is a great read for both children and adults. It has many twists and turns to the plot that surprise the reader and keep it from being predictable. ( )

Alice's Aunt Polly was famous for her pie recipes. She unexpectedly passes away and leaves her pie recipe to her cat, Lardo, and leaves her cat to Alice. How do you leave a recipe to her cat? What happens to Alice? ( )

I absolutely loved this book. I did not, and could not put it down until I was finished reading it. You can see how Alice grows throughout the pages, towards others and towards herself. I also loved how Alice and her mother found a way to come together in the end. I think it is a common issue with many families that many children can relate to (not that parents are doing it on purpose, but at an age around Alice, it is easier to believe the worst than the best). It is a fun, delightful book that teaches children about growing up, learning to cope with sorrow, and finding a way to communicate with parents, through pie.
