This was an okay story, though the grandmother's punishment was a bit on the cruel side. The kid nearly was cooked and eaten rather than learning his lesson. The whole scare you straight angle was definitely the focus of this one. The story had a well-paced plot, but I don't know. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689844352, Hardcover)

Only Theo's grandmother sees the truth about the boy: He's as spoiled as a rotten old apple!

That is why, on one of Theo's naughtiest, grabbiest, mouthiest days, Grandmother decides to bake him a pie.

Young Theo has never seen the like. Its crust is as big as a bedsheet; its filling of plums, cherries, peaches, pears, apples, and quince is as tempting as any sweet feast ever set before a boy. But when he greedily reaches out for a taste, little Theo bites off a lot more than he can chew!

Jennifer Donnelly's wise and funny tale has inspired pictures of modern-day wit and medieval charm from a master of artistic antics, Stephen Gammell.

A naughty boy gets his just "desserts."
