Alice's Aunt Polly owns a famous pie shop and the recipe to her award-winning pie crust is a secret. Aunt Polly suddenly passes away, leaving the secret pie recipe to her cat, and leaving the cat to Alice.
A cute, short chapter book. Each chapter includes a delicious sounding pie recipe.
My one complaint is that the Epilogue is disappointing. Alice doesn't end up married to who she should end up with. However, this would make a good gift to that eight-year-old reader in your life.
