Reviews:

Complete with its own ugly pie recipe, this yummy read-aloud will have readers itching to visit loved ones, play outside and make their own delectable dessert.

—Kirkus


“Sweet molasses, my-oh-my. I’m itchin’ for some Ugly Pie!” sings Ol’ Bear as he sets out in search of one.. . . This humorous tale should appeal greatly to little cubs everywhere.

—School Library Journal

 

The watercolor-and-acrylic illustrations pleasingly crowd the pages with forest details and friendly, wardrobed

animal characters. Playful type placement adds swing to Ol’ Bear’s ditty, while a two-page recipe

completes the tasty package.

—Booklist

About the book:

Ol' Bear's got a hankering for some Ugly Pie. So off he goes on a search past woodsy little homes where he smells the drifting scent of pie. Grandpa Grizzle's got a pleasin' pumpkin pie. Ma Hickory has a righteous rhubarb pie. Sweet Cicely has a heavenly honey pie. But no one has any Ugly Pie--just the ugliest ingredients you ever did see. Wait one second! Ingredients? Maybe it's time for Ol' Bear to start cookin' up something himself!

Excerpt:

So with a heap of hope and a

hitch of his britches, Ol’ Bear

went off in search of Ugly Pie.


As he walked along, he sang a song.

“Sweet molasses, my-oh-my.

I’m itchin’ for some Ugly Pie!”
