|Join us today for a good old pie party to celebrate the new book from Austin author and Caldecott Honoree Liz Garton Scanlon, The Good-Pie Party! When Posty has to move away, only one thing can comfort her and her best friends: baking pie! Bring the kids down today as we celebrate good friends, good memories and, of course, PIE!|
The author of All the World and illustrator Kady MacDonald Denton stir their talents together in a mix as sweet as spiced apples in a buttery crust. Posy, Megan, and Mae have always been the best of friends -- but now Posy has to move away. Only their favorite activity can comfort the girls: baking pie! And when they realize they can host a good-pie party instead of a good-bye party, the sad situation becomes a sweet gathering for their entire community. The Good-Pie Party celebrates good friends, good memories, and the joy of the just-right good-byes.
